Do we need to carry chains on 70? SUV required? Thanks.
Chains are a good idea if snow is expected. If there's a big storm they might damand 4x4 and chains, but that is rare.
My Aunt's boyfriend used to patrol at Keystone and A-Basin (way back in the day) and actually had his vehicle (Ram Charger with studded tires and chains) commandeered by the highway patrol because their vehicles were not going anywhere. I think that storm dropped something like 5'. He never actually told me the total. Suffice it to say it was alot.
The patrol returned his car to him two days later, repainted, all detailed, new tires, new chains, fluids, and brand new top of the line ski rack, custom painted to match the car.
and the moral of the story is... If the cops want to commandeer your vehicle, give it to them cheerfully. You'll get hooked up big time (plus all the good karma).
