Ms. Manners
Hey Ms. Manners,
The winter's definitely here! If I'm a driver, how do I prepare for getting VOCers up the Sea to Sky highway in these conditions, often early in the morning or late at night, possibly while surrounded by the weekend rush of people trying to get to Whistler for skiing?
Yellow Cab Taxi Services

Dear Taxi Services,
Winter tires are required on the Sea to Sky from October 1 till March 31. In BC, winter tires are defined as those labelled with either the Mountain Snowflake symbol or the Mud and Snow (M+S) symbol. Take your time driving, you want to make it to your destination in one piece and consider travelling at unusual hours to avoid traffic.
Enjoy the snow!
