Make sure both you and your vehicle are ready to hit the road on the way to the slopes this ski season
The cold weather is fast approaching, and you know what that means – it’s time to prepare your trusty steed for the epic ski season ahead! But before you start envisioning yourself carving down the slopes, take some time to check your vehicle to see if it needs any maintenance or updates to handle the snowy adventure. Here are a few things to consider.
If you’re planning a trip to a ski resort in a particularly snowy area, snow chains can be your best friend. They’re like the winter equivalent of putting on armor. These bad boys will give your vehicle the traction it needs to conquer even the steepest of mountain roads this ski season.
Now, let’s give credit where credit is due – floor liners. These unassuming mats have saved many an interior from the perils of melted snow, slush, and mud. Not only do they protect your vehicle, but they also make it easier to clean up the aftermath of an awesome ski trip.
Let’s be honest; strapping your skis to the roof of your car can be an embarrassing and slippery challenge. Get yourself a roof rack to give your skis or snowboard stability while traveling. Plus, a roof rack ensures you won’t accidentally engage in any snow skis-on-the-highway antics.
Do you know how important it is to stay hydrated on the slopes? Well, your vehicle needs a drink, too! Make sure to check your coolant and windshield washer fluid levels because overheated engines and salty snow spray on your windshield can be a real buzzkill. After all, nobody wants to experience a car engine meltdown that rivals your post-ski hot chocolate.
Don’t forget your seats! Especially if you get caught outside while it is snowing, you’ll drag all that powder into the vehicle. It’s best to invest in a set of washable seat covers to protect your seats.
