Snow can be tricky, especially the packed stuff. You can find yourself sideways in a hurry.

weekend before last:

Beyond ordinary comprehension.
I behold it as a chimp would a spectrum analyzer in my lab. Awe.

But it still goes sideways on packed snow on the side of a mountain...

If you mean that red Mog, it can go a good 65 mph; it has "high speed" axles. And it carries its weight relatively low; better c.o.g. than a Land Rover.

The tan Mog in this picture can barely make 55 mph but is gas powered, crawl gears, and less than half the weight. It looks like a spider crawling:
