Driving to Ste Foy: Top Tips
- The Col du Petit St Bernard and the Col de l'Iseran are closed in winter, despite what satellite navigation systems might say
- Please do not attempt to reach Sainte Foy via the Mont Blanc tunnel in winter as the Col (mountain pass) is closed due to the snow. This may also be the case when approaching from the Turin side of Italy.
- Please do not confuse Sainte Foy Ski Resort, known as Bonconseil, with Sainte Foy Village (Chef Lieu). The village is 4km down the road so when you reach this, you are not far from the resort!
Why Choose a Première Neige Transfer
Our English-speaking drivers are experienced at driving on the mountain roads, in winter conditions. Fully trained in putting on snow chains and in driving VW Caravelles, which carry 8 passengers plus plenty of luggage.
Your Première Neige driver knows the route through the mountains well and drives it often. So why not step off the aeroplane to be greeted by your chauffeur who will whisk you safely to resort?
