New sticky?

Does anyone else think we need a sticky or a theard just for your snow vehicles. And when I say this I mean tips on how to make it your local hill safe when driving through the snow. Tips on how to chain your tires, bring salt with you if you get stuck on the road, because some of us don't have awd-4wd car/trucks. Just saying
Chris.

That I got...but if you get stuck you're better off wiuth a showel...or using brances or rocks under your wheels. Besides that if conditions are that deep either the road is closed or you need chains.
I believe they use pumice now, instead of salt. Less corrosive and cheaper.

Dont take your rear wheel drive car up the snow covered mtn? Buy a vehicle thats better suited for your climate? Not too much rocket science involved in this process...

Eh, considering how many snowboarders also coincide in the age group that are also new drivers it might not be a bad idea to have a thread with some simple tips and tricks.
To be honest, it's usually the people with 4 wheel drive who end up thinking that they're invincible that have problems... (I'll be honest, I fell into this category at one point).

Yah me too. Like when I was planning my trip to snowshoe, they said all the roads were clear. And I thought when they said clear it would be snowfree but I hit some spots on the way there on when trying to make up the hill with to much snow for a fwd car t make it up, thank god I got my sisters 4wd. I personally think the most dangerous part of my trip is the drive up to my hill.

Salt under your tires? You mean gravel / sand. I suppose course rock salt would have the same effect, due to it's texture, but the saline in it doesn't matter. You're looking for traction you're not going to melt the ice away lol.

Although the proper setup helps a lot (weight over driving wheels, good tires, etc) 90% of it comes down to driving ability and experience in those conditions. You can definitely get by with a crappy setup if you know how to properly handle it (and I'm not talking about drifting here, I'm talking about proper feathering and and not spinning your tires, or heavy braking, etc)
