2G Snow Thread!
We got our first snow in Anchorage (Alaska) on the early morning hours of the 21st. I took my BE for a spin and was very impressed for how it handled with stock tires.
First thing I did was put it into snow mode and floor it (my rather empty street) and got it up to around 20 mph and jam on the brakes. It slide around 3-5 feet which is acceptable in the snow we had - which was around 3 inches. Out in traffic is handled like our 2012 CRV with AWD. Very nimble and non-truck like for the most part but it plowed through the snow with far more power.
Overall, nothing major impressive for city snow driving. Just the expected Honda engineering that I've grown to love. I'm hoping to take it in a spin in a really big, snow filled parking lot (empty of course) and do some donuts and see how well it slides around. Most of the snow in road and parking lots is gone or has been scraped up already so I'll have to wait for a bit.
Post your pictures and stories of your 2Gen Ridgeline in the snow!
