Spin, slide, twirl, and gymkana in winter snow and ice in Colorado. This is our third year doing it (2018, 2019) and this time, every car was what we’d classify as “normal.” With several manufacturers, including Nissan, Acura, Fiat, Honda, and Dodge, attending, we had a lot of great vehicles to choose from. We didn’t choose, though. We just drove them all. Hard.
Winter driving is mostly about feathering the pedals and using common sense. We didn’t do any of that. We did use winter tires, though. Which is highly recommended when driving in snow and ice. But a judicious throttle and careful brake use? Nope. Totally ignored that advice. Ask any kid with helicopter parents: nothing fun is “safe.”
