I didn't even try to drive it in the winter. Bought a Subaru Legacy GT that does much better in the snow. Highly recommend Subaru to anyone. Winter tires + Subaru AWD = Genius (not invincible). Kind of wish I had bought a wagon for the extra space though.

My '98 Outback has never let me down. Snow and ice are easy, the most challenging thing I've ever taken it on is that weird ass oil clay shit in Southeast Utah on backpacking trips. Anyone know what I'm talking about? In canyon country, the roads are made of this shit that gets slicker than solid ice when it rains, so even with 4wd you're basically drifting side to side and looking down a 1,000 ft drop off on one side. Gnarly.

AWD obviously isn't as nice as 4WD, but with a good driver, AWD and a bit of ground clearance is good enough to go anywhere that I need to go for snowboarding. Probably the worst thing about my car is that I always get stuck driving because all of my buddies have fucking sissy ass wannabe race-cars with 2 inches of clearance that puss out on the snow and ice.

When are you going? And where in NM are you going?

You'd be surprised. Most of the time the roads are clear and it is sunny and nice, but man, you see some gnarly shit some days. There's obviously really no way you can know very far in advance what the road conditions will be like (like, far enough out to plan a trip around it), so you'll just have to jump in, but if you find yourself in some hairy shit definitely take it easy. In the mountains of Northern NM I've seen pretty rough days where there are cars in the ditch every few miles. In general, most people get a set of chains to put on if they need them, also a big bag of sand or kitty litter in case you get stuck and need some extra traction. A little shovel is sometimes helpful too.

Hope that helps and I hope you have a good trip!
