Nearby mountains include: Belle Etoile, Dent de Cons, Négresse, Roche Pourrie, Pointe de la Grande Journée, Chaîne du Grand Arc. Nearby mountain ranges include: the Bauges. Albertville is one of two subprefectures of the Savoie department, alongside Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne; the modern city of Albertville was formed in 1836 by King Charles Albert of Sardinia, who merged the medieval town of Conflans, which has buildings dating back to the 14th century, with the town of L'Hôpital. Since Albertville has developed trade between France and Switzerland. Industries such as paper mills and hydroelectricity can be found along its river; the 1992 Winter Olympics were organised with Albertville hosting it. Some of the sports venues were adapted for other uses.

Some sports venues still remain such as the ice rink, La halle de glace Olympique, designed by the architect Jacques Kalisz. Despite this, the town remains more industrial than touristic. In 2003, the town was labelled a "Town of art and history".

Sentetsu Pashi class locomotives

The Pashi or Pasi class locomotives were a group made up of five distinct classes of steam tender locomotives built for the Chosen Government Railway with 4-6-2 wheel arrangement. The "Pashi" name came from the American naming system for steam locomotives, under which locomotives with 4-6-2 wheel arrangement were called "Pacific"; as the 1920s approached, it became clear that Sentetsu needed more powerful locomotives than its existing Amei-class and Teho-type locomotives to pull its important passenger trains. Sentetsu turned to the Baldwin Locomotive Works once again, this time ordering passenger steam locomotives of the 4-6-2 wheel arrangement. Satisfied with these, another six were imported from the United States, this time from ALCo, in 1923. In the same year, Kisha Seizō of Japan built six copies of the Baldwin design and Kawasaki built six more of a similar design. All further Pashi type locomotives were built in Korea. In total, there were 144 Pashi type locomotives of five distinct classes built for Sentetsu: Pashii Pashini Pashisa Pashishi PashikoOf these, the Pashishi class was the most numerous, the Pashiko class was the heaviest and fastest steam locomotive to be operated by a Korean railway company.

Following the end of the Pacific War and the subsequent partition of Korea in 1945, these locomotives were all divided between the Korean National Railroad in the South and the Korean State Railway in the North. In the South, the KNR used them on passenger trains into the late 1960s. Little of their service lives in the North is known; the Pashishi class was built for the Central China Railway in Japanese-occupied China, by the China Railway after the Liberation of China
