Back in my car club days we used to travel to the snow for skiing every year, which is when i learnt to drive in snow. The rest of the year we used to take my speedboat and go water skiing, much warmer.

snow is a rarity outside the mountain ski resorts(and of course,Ballarat!)in Australia,I think that folks who live in the northern states of the USA and Canada would find it amusing that lots of people in Brisbane drove 200klm at 2 in the morning just to see a light snowfall in the granite belt mountains!:dazed002:

Were you aware that there is more skiable snow in Australia than there is in the Swiss Alps? The place is so big that even a small portion is still a big chunk of Real Estate.

I did say "Skiable snow". As our highest mountain is only 7,000 feet high it means that wherever it snows you can ski, and there is thousands of square miles of snow.
