The Best Cars for Skiers and Snowboarders

Wearing a helmet and avoiding avalanches are not the only safety precautions skiers and snowboarders need to take. They often face a dangerous drive up and down the canyons. It is important for them to drive a car that is good in the snow, and provides plenty of storage space for their gear. Here is a list of some of the best cars for skiers and snowboarders:

1

Ford F150

Ford-F150s are so good in the snow that people actually use them as snow plows. This Ford Vehicle was the number one IIHS Top Safety Pick. The vehicle has a safety gear package that includes electronic assistance. The F-150 has stability control, a rearview camera and Bluetooth. On top of being safe while driving on snowy roads, the Ford F150 truck bed provides plenty of storage for your ski or snowboard gear.

Suburu Impreza WRX STI

Suburu Impreza WRX STI

Subarus seem to dominate ski towns like Park City, Utah. There is a reason for that. MSN Autos did research, and they voted the 2013 Subaru Impreza as the best Snow Vehicle. The vehicle has an excellent fuel economy, and has all-wheel drive plus stability control. It also makes drivers a little more comfortable with its heated mirrors, windshield wiper de-icers and heated front seat. There is plenty of storage room for your boards and skis in the back, and you can also put a rack on top of the car.

This luxury sedan is the perfect ski car. It is complete with four-wheel drive, adaptive suspension, adaptive steering resistance, retractable headlight washers, front and rear fog lights and heated windshield washer nozzles to aid you in driving through stormy weather. To warm up after a long day on the slops you can hop into your vehicle and turn on the heated front seats. You also have the option to add a ski sack with storage pass-through, a heated steering wheel and heated back seats.

Ford Focus

Ford Focus

With snow tires the Ford Focus is a small car that will help you safely make it up the canyon. The car comes with traction control, so when the vehicle senses it is slipping the computer calculates what adjustments you need to make to stop sliding. You can also buy a rack to put on the top of your Ford Focus to store any boards or skis that do not fit in the cars storage space.

Toyota Sienna
