You can read more about car trains on my link on the first post. Also, You can read more about mountain passes and current conditions on this website: https://www.alpen-paesse.ch/en/
I think your best bet is to drive close to Milan and head north on highway 2 and then highway 13 from Bellinzona going through the San Bernardino tunnel .This is probably the safest route, avoiding most passes.
Also, The drive via Tirano (NE of Bergamo) over the Bernina Pass and Julier Pass (near St. Moritz) should be possible if there are no temporary closures and you are experienced driving in winter conditions.
Either way, make sure you have winter tires and be prepared for snow and possible road closures.
I haven't driven either route myself, but perhaps another member has.
