Re: Ski car or ski truck?

I had 3 criteria when buying about 2 years ago.  They were, in order:  AWD, large fuel tank and good gas mileage.  There's just 2 of us (+ dog) on the 3 hour weekend drive to WF.  I got a Volvo V60 - many Volvo owners I've asked said they really liked the car.  The AWD, for me, is an absolute must.

The only other AWD/4WD I've owned was a Jeep Wrangler.  That kicked ass but the quality of the Jeeps these days is not good.  I did a lifetime comparison of the cost of the Jeep and the V60 - came out to be about the same.

In the drop off zone at WF a surprising number of people say they rent their Suburban (or the like) for the ski trip.  It seems to make sense; you get a new, AWD vehicle that you can hand back without cleaning and have a more economical vehicle as your daily driver.

I think JasonWx is right - more space, more crap.

Nice Camp.

I think I'm ready for my last flatlander ski car, another CRV.  I'm hoping that after 7 more years, I'll live in the mountains.  

Never thought I was say this but I like the specs on that turbo.

Camp, your back yard has a hell of a lot more snow than your front yard.

Camp, what you need is to put tracks on that UTV. That's what I need for my hill.

You can never go wrong with a Honda.

Is that an Avalanche in the backround? All along when you said you had a "truck" I thought you had an actual truck. Shame on you.
