Never seen a Vancouver snowfall have you?

it may not occur often in the city limits, but when it does, the snow is so wet (because it usually just below freezing) that it compacts down into this wicked ice slush mess. its like driving on an ice rink, that has water on it. it's worse than Toronto snow.

also, we have nice mountains, that we like to go skiing on.
as an FYI, there typically ~10 feet of snow on the local mountains, so ya, need snow tires.
