Depends on what you call, "snow country". In places that regularly get heavy, constant snow, it's much easier to get around in it. Better infrastructure, and drivers who are used to it. And it packs down and is easier to drive on. I'd rather drive through a foot of snow in Wisconsin than a half-inch in Louisiana (done that, it sucked).Guess I thought no one had funerals in winter in snow country?
And most people in my line of work plan their vehicle purchases accordingly.
