Here’s a free piece of advice should you ever find yourself waiting for the first train to roll into a station after a heavy snowfall: Stand as far away from the tracks as possible, assuming you don’t want to get blasted with a massive shitstorm of snow.
Some of you are about to be pummeled by wintry weather, which will blanket every surface of the ground in fluffy white wonder-joy. Snow is a true blessing to hoons everywhere, allowing you to get sideways with just a sneeze on the throttle. Let this Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX demonstrate how to snow.
The Donner pass through the Sierra Nevada mountain range is not for the weak. It’s also apparently not for the strong, as even the indefatigable Jeep four-liter engine couldn’t save this Cherokee from being consumed by old-man winter.
It’s that time of the year: local news stations everywhere are sending poor meteorologists out into snowstorms to discuss hazardous road conditions. Luckily for all of us, a WWLP reporter from Springfield, Massachusetts, got some help from a leafy man-creature lovingly dubbed “Pot Sasquatch.”
The Weather Channel just pulled off some weird 3D magic trick right there on the computer screen to prove how important it is to clear the snow and ice completely off of your car before driving. The future is informative and weird.
When the heavens open up and bless the earth with a large quantity of snow, you can be dull and whip out a snow plow, or a shovel, or something else that involves minimal fun and just gets it out of the way. Yawn! Here’s a better way to clear that snow.
If you live in the northeastern U.S., get ready. Old Man Winter has unleashed Winter Storm Niko, and Niko has just filled up a sock with snowballs with rocks at the center and is about to give the whole upper right corner of America a brutal, protracted beating. But that doesn’t mean you and your car have to just take…
It’s impossible not to look at a new feature from Volkswagen with a skeptical eye after Dieselgate, but we’re hoping the company’s new climate windshield, that can melt snow and ice without the need for distracting wires, delivers as promised—because the winter sucks if you own a car.
Damn. In a terrifying accident in Utah, a FrontRunner train crashed into a FedEx truck and basically shredded its trailer into pieces, sending boxes flying everywhere. Thankfully (and impressively), there were no serious injuries in the crash, as it seemed the train busted through the softest part of the FedEx truck.
Here we see the mythical beast known as the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution 9 in its natural habitat: off paved surfaces, and sideways. Note the large wing and vortex generators on the back of this rare animal. Marvel at the great volume of snow it is able to kick up as it all-wheel-drifts. Rejoice, and smile.
People keep telling me there’s more to Canada than just Timbits and arctic wasteland, but then I see a snow plow truck get slammed by the fury of a stormy sea and I think yeah, no, the weather doesn’t mess around up there.
I could never get into skiing. I mean, just your floppy vulnerable meat-sack of a body on two slippery devil-sticks is pretty dangerous, not to mention a bit too quiet for my tastes. Wouldn’t it be better in the nice, safe, noisy confines of a race truck? Going downhill seems too easy, too. Why not blast up the…
Utah DOT driver Terry Jacobson is miraculously alive after his highway plow truck got checked into oncoming traffic and off a cliff by a semi-truck trying to pass him.

Forget about trying to cram your way onto an already packed subway car when it’s snowy and you need to get to work.

There’s something deeply satisfying about watching this Lada 2105 drift through its natural habitat of snow and ice.
If conditions aren’t warm enough for your summer tires, why not just attack the road with propane-fueled flames?
Last week the California Highway Patrol office up in snowy Truckee shared a photo of something I’d never seen before– snow traction devices that work like zip-ties. The cops used it to illustrate “what not to do” but the concept is actually pretty brilliant.
Does riding low keep you from having fun in the snow? Nope!
