Driving in snow is very different. You have to look at the type of snow and the temp of the road. A good indicator is if the snow is blowing across the road (right on top of it) means its very cold and the road is frozend but if the snow seems to dissolve the road is warm and should be ok. When the road is cold driving is much more difficult. Best to stay on the fresh powder for traction staying out of ruts. Be sure to always watch for "black ice" The most common problem is you get over confident and it is too late to realize you cant stop.
