This picture from the Gotthard pass road was in todays Swiss newspapers. Actually you see no road but loads of snow. It says that the passes are all still closed while people are working very hard since 7(!) weeks to reopen them 3 weeks later into the season than usual (in the case of the Gotthard pass will be opened on May 27th.). So far they have "moved" 220'000 Tons of snow away, which accounts for about 5 meters of snow on a sudden road.
