Traffic remained heavy in the French Alps on Sunday after a night which saw 15,000 people stranded by snow and forced to seek emergency shelter.
Many cars were not equipped with snow chains despite official warnings; the authorities have since declared them compulsory on certain routes.
One young man died when his car left the main road and fell 200 metres down a mountainside.
Up to 15,000 vehicles were stuck in the snow along roads leading to ski resorts in the French Alps during a key seasonal crossover day on Saturday. Report by Lauren Hood
