The temperatures are dropping, snow will start to fall and soon, seemingly everyone on the roads will collectively forget how to drive in the first storm, even though they were perfectly fine at the end of last winter. Here’s how you can avoid that pileup.
This winter, around 17 million tons of rock salt from mines in the U.S. and all over the world will be applied to icy roads across the United States. A growing body of research shows that this salt has become an environmental pollutant, and that we need to start considering alternatives.
A surprise snow storm shut down the Nürburgring for a bit this Sunday after it slicked down the pavement for pure chaos. Some drivers enjoyed those cold, wet conditions more than others. To the highlight reel, away!
It’s 24 degrees in the godforsaken wasteland that is southeast Michigan, so it’s a good thing I’ve got all my winter projects in a nice, warm, insulated garage. (I do not).

The Northeast is bracing for a snowstorm that could dump over a foot of snow with 50 mile an hour winds in certain cities. But it might not be just any snowstorm. It could be a weather bomb.
Surprise! It’s cold again. So before you pack away your winter clothes for the year, we want to take the opportunity to find the best hoodie.
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.
Part of me sympathizes with this guy– I always wish I could take the mountain home with me after a day of skiing, too. But please don’t carry a car-size slab of snow onto the street. Even if it looks like a hilarious Pope hat on your vehicle.
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.
Doing a double backflip on anything is pretty hard. Doing it with a big hulking 450-pound snowmobile is downright insane. After many, many attempts by snowmobile riders around the world, Swedish rider Daniel Bodin finally stuck the landing on one of the hardest snowmobile tricks in history.
I never really thought about visiting Alaska, but after seeing Tom Welsh’s trip out to the north, I started thinking about it hard.
Forget about trying to cram your way onto an already packed subway car when it’s snowy and you need to get to work. Motorcycle maker Christini has applied its expertise in building two-wheel drive bikes to a new snow-thrashing machine called the II-Track Snow Bike system that promises to make wintery commutes actually…
Michigan is cold as hell. It’s colder than hell. Michigan is where icy, frozen hell goes to cool off. So it’s easy to empathize with the plight of 24-year-old Nick Taylor, a poor Roseville, Michigan jamoke who received a $128 ticket from a soulless cop for literally warming his car up in the driveway.
Ice causes all kinds of problems for cars. It’s dangerous to drive on, it obscures your windshield, and sometimes it keeps you from even getting inside. These tips will prevent your car doors and locks from freezing shut, and help you get into your car if they do.
If you’ve ever lived in the northern half of the U.S. and care about your car at all, you recognize road salt as a mortal enemy. Of course it melts ice, but it also breeds cancerous rust which gobbles your vehicle from the inside out. Which is why it hurts to watch it get dumped directly onto these street parked…
On Sunday, I arrived in North Dakota and headed to Oceti Sakowin, one of the main camps where Native water protectors are peacefully blocking the planned path of the Dakota Access Pipeline. I did some interviews. The photographer accompanying me took photos. It was icy cold and very dark and once or twice I fell down…
