    Man thats a complete disaster. That road must have been a solid sheet of ice if thoes big 4x4s couldnt go up. People defanitly should have blocked off the top and bottom. That was a crazy video.

    Holy shit....I'm home for break now, but I go to CC, and its surprising when the roads get bad there, last week when it was all foggy, the precip was freezing up on the roads (like freezing rain..but it wasn't raining) and things were deceivingly sketch

    Thats the thing man, it was slick, but with the exception of a few roads ( like carefree) it wasnt bad. Alot of sports cars and people stopping on hills caused the problems. I slipped a little but for like 4 hours was driving all around town cutting through steep medians to get a good pull angle to tug people out with no problem. Most of it was poor vehicles (Rear wheel drives or low profile tires) would slip on a hill then all other vehicles would get stuck. But all in all all the roads were navigable with careful driving and COMMON SENSE
