The road between Pec pod Sněžkou and Luční bouda in the Czech Republic is finally clear of snow. Every spring, a snowplow goes through the road to break through the several-meter snow barrier. First, bulldozers clear the way, followed by the snowplow that smooths the road surface. This year, the road is open a week earlier than last year, and the day of snow removal is different each year.

The road between Pec pod Sněžkou and Luční bouda is known for its extreme winter conditions, and snow removal is essential to make it passable. Equipped with sharp blades, the snowplow clears the road of snow, ice, and debris that may hinder the vehicles’ movement. Snowplows and bulldozers are crucial during winter, especially in mountainous areas where snowdrifts can be several meters high.

The importance of snow removal equipment in areas where winter conditions can be harsh. Snowplows and bulldozers are critical in ensuring safe and passable roads. These machines are equipped with powerful tools that can efficiently remove the snow, and their operators require skill and experience to maneuver the equipment safely. While the exact date of snow removal may vary from year to year, the process remains essential in making the roads accessible to motorists and residents in snowy regions.
