Spring break begins this weekend. Tours don’t expect major problems with access to the ski areas during the exodus to winter sports resorts on the evening of Friday and Saturday 26 February. In most of our neighboring countries, saffron began to leave partly earlier. Mobility organization VAB expects heavy traffic, as a quarter of Flemish people who used to do winter sports regularly before Covid-19 will go skiing again this winter.

On Saturdays there is only heavy traffic (code orange) in the Rhône-Alpes region.

In Germany, Luxembourg and Austria, winter tires are mandatory in winter weather conditions. Make sure your vehicle is equipped with this when driving in these countries. Snow chains may also be mandatory on some mountain passes in the Alps and the Pyrenees, and due to frequent snowfalls in recent weeks, there is a possibility that you will need them.”
