Info Route Hautes-Alpes
From the end of October to the end of March, you are strongly advised to come here with the necessary special equipment.
For safety reasons, when the temperature is lower than 7°C, we recommend you use tyres that are suitable for the snow, for better grip.
If you don’t want to change your tyres before you come, make sure you at least have snow chains with you, as they are compulsory on some of our roads. A handy tip; place them on top of your suitcases so you don’t need to empty the car boot to find them.
