Creating routes over mountain passes.

It is my first TomTom 500 that I have bought; previously I always had Garmin.
I notice now that I can't create routes in my drive that go over mountain passes, does this have to do with the fact that they are closed in the winter ?
Can I disable this so that I can still prepare my trips for 2022 ?
Thanks in advance for your feedback.

    Hi
    @GunterV
    Welcome to the site...
    On a route with seasonal restricted access ??? i.e... 'Closed over winter' ??? You need to set the 'Date' that you intend to ride the route in the MyDrive Web Route planner when you plan the route....
