I normally don't use my subie for bad weather she's kind of set for regular streets.
Yes, you will likely need winter tires. You will be traveling over Stevens Pass. In January. There will be snow.
This is what it looks like now, and the snow season is only just starting:
You could try looking for some used winter tires, and have them mounted at a place like Tight-N-Tidy if you're really interested.
