The prefect ski-trip rental.
I've got snow-tires on there for the winter, and it's got all-wheel-drive which means you won't need to install chains. It's also great for peace of mind, knowing that you'll have much more stability and control in icy conditions.
Pre-installed ski-rack can fit up to 6-pairs of skis, or up to 4 snowboards.
The V-8 makes for easy mountain climbing too
