First snowfall 2006


Fun in the Snow 2 - 2006

I'm so glad I put the winter tires on the Subaru last week. We had our first snowfall last night and it was a doozy. Weather forecasters had predicted a storm with 20-30 cm of snow this weekend and being up where we are on the mountain, we got a lot more than that. It started yesterday afternoon and as of now it hasn't stopped.

We were thinking of buying winter tires for the Hondy Odyssey, but since the Subaru STI has a set of Hankook Ice Bears, there's really no reason for us to do it right now. I packed the family in the STI this morning and found an empty parking lot to make sure--ahem--the tires were working properly. I'm really happy with the performance of the Subaru STI and the Hankook Ice Bears--they had lots of grip and even at the limits of adhesion there was lots of control.
