I plan on crossing the Swiss Alps by car this May: Zurich to Tasch (Zermatt) on May 10, then Tasch to Asti, Italy on May 12. A few questions:
Will I definitely have passable roads?
My car will have rear-wheel drive and all-season tires. Will I need winter-specific tires? And if not, should I have chains just in case?
I was hoping to go via Susten Pass to Tasch, but I heard it may not be open then... what is a scenic alternative?
Also, is there anything else I should know about the trip? All information is welcome!
