Do I need wheel chains?

Wheel chain requirements vary daily for day entry and are determined by the weather forecast and existing road conditions. Requirements may vary between 2WD and 4WD/AWD vehicles. The Wheel Chain Declaration is updated daily at 5pm for the next day.

NOTE - a number of cars are unable to fit chains in accordance with their user manual, plus some tyre sizes may be inappropriate for snow chains (wide and/or low profile tyres are often difficult to fit).
