    Yes, or as we've said, through the mountains.

    The point we're making, alpacinoutd, is that a road cannot go through a single mountain (unless it's in a tunnel).

    Re: The winding road snakes through / up the mountain

    Thanks everyone. Just be certain.

    Is this sentence completely okay?

    The village is on top of the mountains. The only way to get there is a winding dirt road that snakes around the mountains.
