Winter precautions

In winter, we recommend that you use the Casse-Blanche car park (P1) with 700 covered spaces, monitored and free. Make sure you have special equipment: in snowy weather, chains may be made compulsory for access to the resort. Since 2021, special equipment (4 snow tires or a pair of chains on board) is required to travel in the Hautes-Alpes department from November 1 to March 31 of each year.

Remember to check the traffic conditions in real time on Inforoute05. Finally, equip yourself to clear snow from your vehicle and keep an eye on it during your stay: you may have to move it to allow snow removal operations.
