Dear MyswissAlps community,
My cousin and her husband are coming to Basel for visiting and we are planning to do a very small trip to the Alps, one night staying only. As I'm arranging this small trip, I have been living in Basel for just over a year (we are from Mexico) and I haven't been out much in the outdoors during my living in Switzerland. The first thing to know is that my cousin is pregnant, so we can't do any hiking, skiing or just wander around by foot. So I'm thinking to rent a car so we can stop whenever we want and for not doing much walking, instead of going by train or bus. The main destination I'm thinking is Vals as we can visit Chur, Flims and other towns before and literally just see the mountains.
So here my question: Are conditions for going by car good enough during the first week of April? (5th and 6th of April 2018). I see on the live webcams that there is a lot of snow so I just want to be sure that we can drive through the roads by car and visit towns around Vals. I guess we'll have to consider snow chains for the wheels?
Please let me know any useful thoughts!
Thank you in advance and my best regards.
