From Wednesday, June 26, 2019, the Sustenpass (2224 m above sea level) will be continuously accessible from 8.00 am as the last Urner Alpine Pass. The winter lock is lifted with it. “Weather-related blockages are still possible at any time,” explains Stefan Bucheli, Head of Operations Cantonal Roads. Therefore, Stefan Bucheli advises to clarify the road conditions before each pass. Current information is under www.ur.ch/strasseninfos available.
The reason for the late passport opening this year are the large amounts of snow, which have been in the higher elevations and are still partially. In the last three years the Sustenpass could be opened earlier. In 2018, this was the case on June 15, 2017 on June 9 and 2016 on June 11.
