The road access to Pico do Areeiro has already been closed,” according to the Regional Secretariat for Equipment and Infrastructure, which oversees the Regional Directorate for Roads. The ER 202, which runs between Poço da Neve and Pico do Areeiro, is now closed due to snow.

Those intending to visit the mountains to see the snow are hereby warned that they cannot pass by car from the gate located below Poço da Neve.

Given the predicted accumulation of snow by the IPMA, which is already visible in the photographs that have reached us, it is highly inadvisable to access the highest peaks without adequate equipment.
