Driving in snow

Bad weather here in Helsinki today.

Here are couple of videos:






No problem driving with X3 and studded winter tyres (Nokian).

Some day I will have some fun on snow and try to video it...

I like the colour of your car on the snow; like a cherry on a cake

Hmm... I wonder can I resize my images here? Sorry for the large size of some of the images...

Winter is fading away here... so some I attach here memories from the past mild winter:

Weather and roads in Lapland:









Driving at the Golf club house in Turku:

Driving on ice with Juha Kankkunen and Tommi Mäkinen, both world champions in rallye.

In this they do not drive with X3, but they do have X3s in that Winter Driving Experience:

Now Kankkunen and Marcus Grönholm. I think Marcus had the car in better control than Mäkinen:
