Giveaway: Z Tire Chains (this blog) & Whistler Weekend (Z Tires contest) (12/9)


Z Tire Chains - Whistler Weekend Giveaway

It was 80 degrees in Dallas yesterday, but the first big cold front of the season swept in overnight and temperatures dropped by 40+ degrees!

While Dallas does not normally see much snow (we usually get ice if the temperatures are cold enough), I have lived in and visited other parts of the country where I have driven in some pretty nasty snowstorms. For those scary situations, I always wished I had some extra traction on my tires but never did anything about it before the storms would arrive. If you expect to be in such a situation this winter, this giveaway may interest you!

SCC, maker of the Z Tire Chains, is currently running a giveaway for a weekend trip for two to Whistler, British Columbia! Here are the details from SCC:

This winter, SCC (maker of the trusted Z winter traction products) has prepared three videos with some helpful advice encouraging folks to “stay safe”…..on the road. As a thank you for watching and sharing the videos, SCC is offering a Whistler Weekend Getaway AND a set of Z chains.

What do you win?

– Two-nights stay for two in beautiful Whistler, British Columbia
– Two adult ski passes
– $50 per day to spend as you wish (maximum of $150)
– One set of Z chains (specific to your tire needs)
(Note: airfare not included)

    The last time I drove in snow the roads were so icy and I was scared so I just inched my way along. I was clutching the steering wheel so tightly that my hands cramped up. I hate driving in snow.

    I am from upstate NY and I lived in Alaska for several years, so I could fill a book about winter driving. I guess the worst I ever had to deal with is the time I had to drive home from work in a sudden blizzard. The snow plows weren’t keeping up and essentially I as plowing my way down the highway and when I left the highway to pull into town, the roads were so piled high that I kept getting stuck and would have to get out in 3 feet of snow to push, by myself, on Christmas Eve.

    my worse ice episode happened a few ago–i was on my way to my brothers house and hit black ice–the car turned completely sideways and i had cars coming at me from the opposite direction–it was a scary situation because they were trying to slow down and got into the black ice too–luckily we didn’t hit but it sure was a close call.
