ANy Envision owners that lives in a snowy area?

Just out of the curiosity, was wondering if there’s any of y’all that lives in an area that snows a lot? If so, how does your Envision handle?

I have the Premium with standard AWD and have no problems in the snow. It has really good grip even if half the car is on snow while the other half on the road. The Active Twin Active Clutch does really good and competes with BMW xDrive.

For fun I turn the electronics off and it will drift thr back end out without problems.

NormT do you put snow chains/snow tires on yours?

Mine (Prem II, AWD, 2.0T) drives great in the snow, if there's ice it slips a little nothing unusual.

I have owned numerous all-wheel drives and the Envision performs better than any I have owned. Have felt no need for snow tires to this point as the standard tires work well.

No snow tires just stock Hankook Ventus Noble S2. Which is a summer performamce tire so not thr best choice but works well.

I have a set of old Michelin Pilot Alpin snow tires to play with this winter!

Normally, it snows a lot in CT. This year, absolutely none of significance. Still even with the standard tires that came with it I suspect it will be a lot better than my old Saab 9-3 with snow tires trying to climb my 650 foot mountain. Our older Subaru Legacy had no trouble with about 8 inches of snow, and the all wheel drive is better on the Buick.
