Anyone make this trip before? In the M3? I don't have chains or anything like that. Is it possible? Google maps streets view looks like some really nice driving roads :-)
Yep. We have all seen the pict of me getting sideways two years ago while trying to go through Aspen on summer tires.... Then again, that was in April. You should have no problem this time of year. I was just in that area about two weeks ago in the M3 and it was fine. Take the Bimmer and enjoy the drive!
