Now this one might not be for you Europeans, but it is for us people who never ever get to drive in snow. You need to ensure that the car you are driving has to correct snow tyres. Driving with snow tyres just make it so much more easy. When you get to spots where there are no snow on the road do not exceed 50km per hour!
Be careful, no matter what time of the year you chose to make this short hike, the path is always muddy and slippery. Take care what you wear cause you'll get a lot of mud on your shoes :O) It's worth it, don't worry! It's even funny to see all your friends hopping like rabbits to find dry spots on the path :O):O):O)
Be carefull when walking in the snow as you could find yourself no longer walking, but lying on your back.
