Just drove from Henderson NV to Brian Head UT. Hit a big snowstorm just south of Cedar city. Plows were across all 3 lanes of I 15. Audi did just fine. Then going up the mountain to the ski resort was clear until this one stretch. Roads were snowy. Slid a bit going thru the dreaded S curve but gave it a little gas and it drove right out of it and straightened up. The car shifted into lower gear as the AWD system was really starting to work. Love it.
