A corolla with chains could probably make it to the upper lot. The road can get pretty slick though and you'll likely have more trouble going down than up. I am also assuming you have good winter tires.
I never use the hut, so no comment on that.
You can easily snowshoe to the hut. I don't see snowshoe tracks up higher though. There is a ski trail up and you could probably snowshoe up, but I think it would be a slog.
