Default Super stoked for this winter!

As the title says I am super stoked for winter. Can't wait for Cypress to open! I am going to be on afternoon shifts all winter (Nov-~end of March) so I get to head to the mountain for morning pow. Yay Cypress Silver pass. Also can't wait to try out their new Katal Landing Pad. If you don't know what it is, I suggest Googl(e?)ing it. It looks pretty bad ass.
My next mods/snowboarding gear this winter is a roof rack and winter tires.
Speaking of, anyone have any recommendations for winter tires (16", $500-700 budget) and roof racks?
This is going to be my second winter with the sube and first with winter tires. One of the main reasons I bought a sube was for the winters and going to the mountain. AWD and winter tires=

Picked up some OEM 2010 5 spoke STi wheels with Blizzak WS-60's

I'm all good, but since blizzak WSs burn up pretty badly , i'll only be throwin them on when it get either really cold or actually snows.

crossbars, i suggest OEM. cheap. can be had for $150 or less online. only issue is that you'll want to put some kind of paddnig/foam btwn the contact points of the towers and the roof of your car. it's a hard plastic/rubber that WILL scratch our crappy paint

and what pass do you have for cypress? i have a silver pass agani this yr.. time to shred more on the bunny hill!
