It's not your DSC. At all. It's your tires, end of story.

Just because you don't have the knowledge or skills to drive in a snowstorm with summer tires doesn't mean that other people can't. Probably only YOUR car and that suv didn't get anywhere so don't group everyone into your assumptions.

Considering I have owned two e46 m3s with Bridgestone S03s and have driven through actual blizzards, I know exactly what a BMW on summer tires in 12" of snow is capable of, and that is precisely d!ck.

From my actual experience all I have to say is that dedicated winter tires on our cars are a must, I drove today without a hiccup, my car felt rock solid and I've been driving for 24 years, my rwd BMW gave all the confidence in the world and I know it's because of my winter tires, best money I've ever spent, tell that to the 370z spinning all over the place because he was too cool to keep his summer tires, I'm out!

Just got back from a ride. This one is nothing like snowmageddon a few years ago. Much calmer snow, not nearly as fast accumulation wise, and visibility is not to bad either. Gotta love a wrangler in the winter though.

Wait this is a "real man" contest?

Most people in California aren't from here. I live here because of the work I do.

I am originally from Colorado.

My hometown is Alma, Co. Elevation 10,500ft.

Annual snowfall= 270 inches
Annual Average temperature = 43F

5 more years here, and I am moving back, I really miss it. Of course the heavy snow is much better when you can actually have fun in it, as I am sure you know.

Duluth only gets an annual average of 67" of Snow.

Although you are a bit colder on average by 5

Here in Boston if accumulated like crazy. Yesterday I went out to shovel at 5pm there was 2 inches. I went back out at 7:30 and there was 6 more inches. Around 9:30 there was about 4-6 more inches. I was already ran down and figured I would wake up early and do some more shoveling. At 9 am this morning it was already over 2 feet in the places where I shoveled and up as high in places in my backyard to the top of the fence about 5-6 feet. 3 hours of shoveling this morning only got my stairs, a path in front on the sidewalk, and a path out to the street all only as wide as one shovel width. My girl went out to shovel about 2 hours later and the wind and continued snowfall blew another 4-6 inches on top of everything I got finished. We got the whole front of the driveway down to be able to get the cars out and the plow came and put a new hurdle for us right across the driveway.

Yayyyyy storm!!!
