I feel like we haven't had a lot of pictures since the weather turned. My girlfriend took this one today on our way to work, Emmett our Dachshund who gets to come to my office on friday's all bundled up in a blanket on my lap as we wait for the mini to fully heat up!

Joe hasn't seen much of the Cooper, he's not too good on long drives and I've gotta protect that leather! Wink

If everything seems under control, you're just not going fast enough.

Haha I love all the pictures guys! and yea Emmett can be rough on my leather..just a few days ago I found a stray black lab...about 13 years old and 150 lbs..he was covered in mud and was dripping wet....I got him into my back seat and took him home...Found his owners 2 days later. now that was hard on the leather..but I couldn't just leave him Cry, Either way, the things we do for the animals we love! oh and I LOVE that last picture of the coupe. it makes it look buried in the snow LOL i did a double take.

Thanks, If you throw a blanket in the back it works great for covering the seats for those unexpected moments.

Here's a couple from last January (2012) when Elliott and I went up to Snoqualmie Pass to go Tubing.  The MINI performed beautifully in the snow!




I did post them last year, but it seemed appropriate to add them to this thread.

And this one is from 2008, when it snowed down here in Seattle:

Here are a couple of photos from our trip to the Methow Valley this past weekend. We stayed at the Rolling Huts, and went skiing at the Loup Loup Ski Bowl.

Somewhere under the road grime is a Royal Grey Countryman I swear it LOL

Great pics of the snow, I have heard they are great in the snow but I generally don't drive in the snow, because of having access to a AWD suv. I was kinda excited to maybe get snow while at work so I could try it out.  Oh and I love the countryman, I really like them i was very very close to buying one, i am 6'4 so the extra room really is insane. But I have a strange attraction to superchargers, I prefer them so heavily over turbo's just for ease of work on them and in my opinion, some find it the other way. Either way I am sure down the road I will own a countryman Big smile

MINI's do well in the snow if it is not terribly deep (AWD does not count Wink) on Mt. Hood this Spring.

I wish there was a local MINI Dealership, like our Honda, Subaru, Mazada and VW.
