Definitely one of my scariest driving experiences was last year when we were driving up the winding road that leads you up to Big Bear in early December in my buddies BMW. Twin turbo, low pro's and rear wheel drive as it started snowing

We couldn't even get chains because he had a special tire size and after talking to 2 different people that had slid off the road in 4x4's we decided we had to drive back down. Stayed the night and had to drive all the way back up in the morning to the mountain instead of staying in our Hotel that was 15 mins from Bear.
