It's the time of year to break out the shovel, ugly boots, and mom's knitted hat and put them in the trunk of your vehicle...just in case. Recently, I purchased the ultimate pack that contains water, candles, a space blanket and ribbed gloves and put it into the trunk of my new front wheel drive vehicle. Feeling prepared, I headed to my local resort during a snowstorm in a quest for some powder turns. However, when my vehicle skidded through a curve and landed in a snow bank, my day of riding powder turned into a day of shoveling. Without any panic, I grabbed my shovel and began digging out my vehicle. Unfortunately, my shovel proved more useful for grooming kickers than digging out my vehicle. Luckily, a saint named Dan arrived and used his Chevy S-10 and a towrope to save me from my fluffy, powder nightmare. As I drove away, I noticed a bus had slid into a similar predicament from which I was just rescued. Immediately, I wondered, how can these simple mishaps be avoided?

Searching for answers, I contacted several driving experts and asked them their top tips for safe winter driving. Here are their Top 5 winter driving tips to keep skiers and riders on the mountain, not in a snow bank.

Click the links below for five tips to avoid these winter driving mishaps.

Taking the time today to prepare for winter conditions can eliminate a headache in the future. So take heed of the tips from the aforementioned experts and you should never have to spend a powder day in your vehicle. For more information, visit these websites:www.drivability.ca/Pages/frontpage.html
