Driving from Livigno to Milan in the early hours of the morn

First time driving in the snow, all geared up ok, but a bit worried because our flight departs Milan Linate airport at 11am. So that means we have to start our trip from Livigno as early at 5:00am? How safe is this? Will the roads be cleared from the snow that early, if it has snowed during the previous night?

All sound advice, would not go via St Moritz if you are pressed for time. Whatever you do, don't go into Como, which can get very busy and congested. It should not be on your route, because Como would only potentially come in to play if you were heading to Malpensa which is more west.

Another supermarket to stop at is the Iperal in Rogolo. Slightly smaller than the Macdonalds one, has plenty stock of chains and a great bakery. It is on the "right" side of the road so you don't have to cross over busy traffic.

Last piece of advice is do not be tempted to buy the new fangled snow chain substitues which are like stretchy material covers. They are not nearly as effective.

The iperal we use is the large one on the edge of Sondrio, it usually has a good stock of snow chains. Also their lunch menu is nice, and service quite quick, it also gives you chance to stock up on things to take up to Livigno to save time on arrival in resort. There is now a roundabout at the supermarket on the main road so pulling in and out is less dangerous than it used to be!
