Traveling to Windham Mountain - driving which car?
 
So I'm traveling to Windham Mountain in Upstate NY this Sunday for some day boarding with a few friends and wanted to get everyone's opinion on which car I should take up there. I've never been to Windham so I don't know how the roads are over there. I own an RWD car (Infiniti G35) and was wondering if that was okay to bring up there or should I just borrow my brother's SUV since its AWD instead?

I know it's a silly question but only asking because it's a pain to ask for the SUV. Share some input people!

Thanks! :thumbsup:

The G should be fine particularly since it's not calling for snow, at all, this weekend. The roads are pretty open and get a bit windy going up and around some bends, but again, no snow is being called for so take your pick.

Hmm okay then maybe I'll take my car and hope I don't get stuck anywhere with ice and snow since I got stuck in a snowstorm on an interstate back in January of this year by Woodbury Commons Outlet. Not cool I tell you lol.

Yeah you'll be fine, I drive a mustang and haven't had any issue's, nice windy roads too.

If there's ANY kind of slush/snow on the ground, the G will be going nowhere. Trust me, I know...albeit I was running 285/30/20 or 275/35/19 summer tires those times. I picked up some snow tires for the G this year, and it did ok getting home when it snowed in the city, but couldn't even make it up a steep driveway. If you're on anything but dedicated snow tires, just borrow your bro's car to be safe. Oh, with how slammed my car is too, I'd bottom out for sure, and can't afford to slide into a curb. You'll be a little better off if you're at stock height.

Can you fit your gear in that car? :laugh:

I hope I can fit my gear in that car. I need to see if I can put the back seats down so I can stash my boards from the trunk to the back of my seat. I know the boards won't fit sideways in the backseat.

Hmm yea I don't want to get stuck bc I already got stuck once with the G with light snow/ice conditions. But the forecast for this weekend is sunny with no rain/snow at all.

OMG, someone who's NOT from NY (not NYC) that doesn't refer to the rest of the state outside NYC as upstate. Major props to you my friend. :thumbsup:

And again as I mentioned, there is NO site I can find calling for snow this weekend there. On top of that we are having the Feb thawing before the second round of winter comes by. Last 2-3 days have been in the 40-50's. If there is some if any snow on the side of the road I'll be surprised, but definitely isn't going to be any on the road, period, unless snow comes from no where unpredictably.
