Go prepared, take some simple precautions and bring the right gear, unlike our friend in the Land Rover who slid off of a mountain road in a snow storm. This was one of 3 vehicles off the road from Sunday, this picture was taken 3 days later after the snow melted back. I pulled one truck out of the ditch but this one and another down an embankment needed more help. Proper tire chains were the right recipe, not one use failure prone cable chains. Whatever you are doing, take a minute and bring the right gear with you. Whether you are mountain biking, climbing, ski touring or just driving in the winter. Plan ahead, it just might save your life.
