We couldn't find a similar thread, so hopefully you fine folks here can help. :-)
My wife and I are planning to take a road trip from Vancouver, B.C. to Toronto, ON to visit her family. We will be going in a new Dodge Ram 4x4.
Neither one of us has ever driven clear across Canada (or mountains) in winter conditions.
Is this doable? Safe? What do we need to outfit our truck with in terms of tires, chains, etc? Is there any way we can get away with our factory all-season tires and snow chains, or are winter tires mandatory for crossing the Rockies, prairies, and down through Northern Ontario?
NOTE: Going through the U.S. isn't an option. It has to be Canada. As much as we'd rather it not be the case.
Thank you in advance!
BTW, just in case I ask "dumb" questions, I am a Florida boy - I don't know anything about snow. :-P
