Snow

That looks awesome. I want some of that snow to visit PA.
I wanna experience snow in my X for the first time. A few years back I had a 89 Wrangler. Loved how that handled in the snow. I want to see how the X compares.

You get snow in AZ, but we can't get any here in Michigan!

Gotta remember tho, we have some 11,000+ft mountains here in AZ. This was at about 7000ft. It was 60° back at my place 100 miles south of here. Nice to be able to hit the mountains tho and be in the snow within a couple of hours.

--I go about 115 miles to the Sierras (on the way to reno) for snow--

--But cruising on the freeway in the X is PURE PLEASURE--

cool.... remember the posts on XOC about the VDC still kicking in on snow and ice even despite the vdc off button being "on" ( traction control disabled). I always surmised that that was an auto trans protection scheme and am asking you if you experienced any obtrusive traction control.

I just haven't had the X in snow yet, just wondering.

Snow in Milliken Colorado, at my house on 12/21:

The Vdc will cut the throttle while a "slip" condition occurs, The "abs" grabbing sound occurs while in or out of vdc. Turn the vdc off and you will have full throttle even while "slip" is occuring, turn in back on and when "slip" occurs you will not be able to power out of a snow drift!

Man I miss snow... and about the VDC thing, if you keep your left barely on the brake, you can do anything you want, the Slip, and VDC dont seem to care. I have done brake stands, and went sliding all around with a little brake.
