Clear all glass and mirrors of ice before attempting to drive. Carry an ice-scraper to clear the bulk of the snow.
Park only where directed. If you do not, you run the risk of another vehicle or snow clearing vehicle running into your car.
Fit chains at bays where you see the ‘Fit Chains Here’ sign. Always fit chains to driving wheels only. When required, four wheel drive vehicles should fit chains to front wheels.
Before you drive up the mountain, ensure that your fuel tank is topped up as you may experience lengthy delays in bad weather when you need to keep your motor running.
Knowing how to drive on winding mountain roads, in snow and ice conditions, is an important skill to acquire. Travelling on alpine roads in winter can be dangerous unless special driving techniques are used. Even where snow has been cleared from the road, the surface may still be covered by a film of snow or ice.
