Snowstorms and icy roads are a challenge that every resident must overcome to enjoy life in the White Mountains, but there are a few key tricks that even the most seasoned winter driver should know.

The Federal Highway Administration calculates that more than 150,000 vehicle crashes occur every year due to icy road conditions, resulting in 135,000 injuries and almost 2,000 fatalities. While general snowfall is a well-known culprit, black ice presents the biggest challenge for motorists during the winter.
