What is the equipment of the family members?

Bring warm clothes adapted to the snow: anorak, hat, gloves, ski suit, sunglasses or mask, sun cream, and a bathing suit for a wellness break.

How to equip the car?

Bring snow tires or snow chains, a snow shovel, a snow broom, a scraper... Practice mounting the chains to avoid stopping too long on the side of the road.
Also remember to check the road conditions before you leave, as traffic conditions can change quickly.
