Default Your Snowboard Vehicle.

New to the forums. Currently have a BMW 330xi as my vehicle to get to the mountain. See where that's a problem? More than a couple inches on the road and I am screwed..


Looking for input on what vehicles you all drive to the mountain. I have about 12k to put into this. Maybe more.

Thanks for input--

-Alex

'01 Subaru Forester running IPike winter tires (non studded). Through the board in the back and just plow through deep powder.

I do live on a Vermont mountain after all.

2006 Subaru Legacy. Works like a gem. Only thing that sucks is that only the middle seat folds down in the back. But at the same time means if there is more than 2 ppl I am not driving! Can't fit more than 2 boards or a board, skis and some poles.

No forester's. My wife wants one, and I don't like them. She will go crazy if she sees this post and rub it in my face.

Keep the vehicles coming though. It's painting a picture in my mind.

I drive a BMW 330xi and a new Toyota Tundra 4x4 5.7.

If you are having problems with the 330xi get snow tires. Ours sucked in the snow but as soon as getting snow tires it's money! Never had a problem since getting snows. I've driven thru feet of snow and no problem!

The Toyota is the bomb in the snow and huge for all my gear. Most times I drive the BMW because I get in the 30's mpg vs. 15 mpg.

Thanks a LOT for this one. I have been seriously eye balling legacy's. I don't know if she will go for another car though, since I already have one all wheel drive car. As long as 2 boards fit we're golden.
