Will be driving 5-6 hours to mountains in non snow conditions to then drive in snow conditions for a week at a time or weekend at a time, constantly through winter seasons.
Definitely performance winter tires. Im in the same condition with Big Bear and considering only 1/4th of the trip to the resorts are snow roads when storms are bad, dedicated snow tires like the ws-70 and general altimax artics will wear out too fast from all the dry road highway drives. I have the dunlop winter sport 3D.
