We live close to the US border in South Surrey/White Rock area and we got about 16 inches of powder snow at our house last night. It was deep enough that our Maltipoo dog stepped off the steps and disappeared. lol Had to drive my husband in the Kona EV this morning to his regular hospital treatment. The Kona did just fine on the unplowed lane way and compact snow on side streets. A little slipping on the rear end on ice patches on corners --probably lack of practice on my part with giving a little too much gas lol, but we were impressed with the traction. We have lived and driven vehicles in the winter in Alberta, Winnipeg, Ottawa, Trenton etc. These Michelin's would have been fine for main roads, freeways etc. I think you could get away with them going up country to ski country, but you would have to keep moving on big hills. We are pleased so far. Tomorrow is supposed to be worse so I will let you know if we find any difference. Lots of asses out so I was worried about our Alice. i.e. no headlights on, snow not shoveled from the car, no snow tires, and tail gating and not reducing speed.
