How does the tribeca do in the snow and ice? I am moving from Houston, TX to Traverse City, MI and I am curious how my wifes' tribeca is going to handle. I know it is a Subaru and I have had my car in the snow and I am very pleased with it, but the weight difference is what has me questioning it. Thanks for any information you may have.

Because they all have fun in snow

I've being to ski resorts with a foot of fresh snow. No problem. Just use common sense. The wide low profile tire (think it as snow board vs ski) isn't the best thing in snow but the VDC system keeps it in check.

I agree with Foxbat. Snow and ice are not a problem w/the B9 if common sense is used. In WY, we've just had a few days of snow and ice with below zero temps and my wife and I felt quite safe. The stock Goodyears are adequate with the VDC and overall I like them better than the stock Bridgestones we had on our WRXs. However, if you are going to be in snow and ice on a daily basis, I would go to a dedicated winter tire for the extra control.

Get a set of snow tires and you should be fine. AWD is great but does not help you stop or turn on slippery surfaces; only tires do that.
