Hi
I’m returning to complete the way to sdc.which I started in apr2019 from Sevilla.
I’m picking it up from Tábara on the Sanabrés and I haven’t got a clue whether there is a ‘possibility’ of areas that may have ‘Snow’ problems.
I’m expecting it to be very chilly but would like to know whether I should expect snow at all.

could anyone relate their experience of this route in this period please ?

Thank you
Annie

If it helps, I walked in May/June 2019 and while it was pleasant during the day it became cold during the evenings. I relied on a sheet instead of a sleeping bag, and regretted it. Much of the region is a 600m high plateau, so snow cannot be ruled-out in March.

Thanks Karl - info is ‘always’ helpful for others walking at that time. I turned around on May 8, so have a feel for that month. I’m going regardless in March this year but would like to be for-armed (re further along )..
It was a great way as far as Tábara tho.
Buen camino

Hi Annie,
I was there end of April 2018 and had some heavy snow showers at Padornello and a bit of snow the next day proceeding to the galician border. As I understand you, you will be there in early March. So be prepared for some snow in the mountains. But I don´t think that the camino will be covered by snow for a longer period.
The public albergues in Lubián and A Gudiña were well heated.

Ultreia!

Wow thanks for info. Good to know. Yes I will be walking in March from 20th.
I have checked Sara Dhoomas video @Sara_Dhooma ; also, and country looked ok then so it may be a lottery. It’s a ‘possibility ‘ though. It seems that in 2018 there came a late chill. The posts I have been reading in past few years often quote good weather earlier and wetter or colder later in the season. So definitely a lottery.
