Useful info thanks. We are driving down to Spain in a couple of weeks, I am assuming the roads along the north coast, Bayonne to Santander are not affected by snow yet?

According to that the aragouet-Bielsa tunnel on spanish side is chains only + winter tyres. . lorries ,buses prohibited.
Som Port is the same.chains & winter tyres only so must be passable at the moment although it does state difficult.

The Portalet is about 30 miles South or should I say East of the Somport. Just had a look less than 30 km.

Should remember as we did them both on a Triumph street triple a number of years ago, rode from Orthez through the Somport tunnel, had lunch in Jaca then rode down to Sabinanigo and back over the Portalet.
