By Car

Make sure you have, in the periode of 1st November - 1st April, the snow chains directly available. In winterly conditions the snow chains might be needed to get to the chalet.

Route description
From Albertville you take the 4-lines road to Moûtiers, from there the 2-lines RN90 via Bourg St. Maurice in the direction of Val d'Isere. After Bourg St. Maurice you will pass the center of the small village Seez. Just before exiting this village you need to keep right on the Y-junction in the direction of Tignes/Val d'Isere.

After a few kilometers the road will go up and after a few hairpins you will pass the village Sainte Foy Tarentaise and the village la Thuile. Just at the end of la Thuile you will see a big sign at the left hand side telling "Sainte Foy Station >> 4 kilometer". Follow the road at the left up the mountain.

Follow the road up; also when there is a possibility to turn left, take the hairpin to the right (follow the sign "Centre Station"). Entering the village you will see a long appartment building at the left hand side and seperated chalets at the right hand side. Now you are at the lower side of Sainte Foy Station. Follow the road up through the village, you will pass the general parking area, the centre (at the left) and just after passing "Marigold" you will see the entrance of the parking garage of "Hameau des Neiges". You might consider to drive up to the entrance of the complex, where you can off load your luggage and then drive back to park your car.
