I checked Subaru forums, and everyone from out of state always says get snow tires. But we live in SD, so we don't need/want snow tires for everyday. We do run up to the mountains with some frequency in the winter, so we always had chains for our 2WD cars. I know the CHP here turn people without them back during heavy conditions, so I was hoping someone here in CA could enlighten me whether they cut AWD's some slack. But thanks for the info anyway.
Hope that helps.
We've had the cops ask if we had chains, but they've never made us put them on or made us prove that we had them. Of course, we've never been stopped in the middle of a major snowfall, so I'd bet they'd be far more insistent. This was also on the way to Mammoth. I'd bet on more dangerous roads like the one up to Big Bear they'd be stricter.
It just occurred to me thatWtf wrong thread.
Are you in the wrong thread?
Hahaha, cooking with shortening is some serious winter fun. BTW, I think you can probably replace it with oil or butter depending on the recipe. It's usually used for baking stuff, right?
That does sound like great Winter Fun. B, be safe and have a great trip!
I am going snowshoeing next weekend. Do any of you know anything about snowshoeing? I am especially wondering if it's better to wear hiking boots or winter snow boots with the snowshoes. Also, do I really need gaiters?
It depends on how much snow there is. At this point you may not even need snowshoes.
