How do the Continental Conti contact lx sport tires do in snow?

Default All season tires

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.

As far as an all season tire can go, they should be fine for a while (@ full tread depth) in snow .. See our most recent test data here;
