You need a bigger parking lot and more snow. Or even better, ice.

I did some donuts a little bit ago at one of the snow parks on the way up Crater Lake.

I'm just glad you "learned" that SUMMER tires are not for use in snow the semi-hard way...in a parking lot rather than on the the street.

Er, it depends, actually. I had a set of Kumho summer tires (KH11's) that got rather decent grip in deep snow, slush, and on anything but hard packed snow or ice. The excellent grooves and channels on summer tires tend to get decent grip in fresh powder and snow... Once you start using up that tread, it kinda changes though...

I put them on my outback and use that for snowboarding, they do amazing in the snow/ice, best tires ive ever had by far !!! Have taken them up 6 times this season, and never had any issue, and only time i loose control is while doing cookies = D...

Heres a few pics
