Don’t eat the yellow snow, and more you need to know how to Aspen in the winter!
How to avoid slipping while crossing icy streets:
- Add stabilizers to your shoes, such as Yaktrax, to give you more traction.
- Take your hands out of your pocket to catch yourself in case you fall.
- Leave the stilettos with no tread at home.
- Give cars extra time to stop on icy roads before you step into the crosswalk.
- Avoid taking photos while standing in the middle of a street. We know it can seem like a perfect shot, but those cars driving down the road may not be able to stop quickly on the icy streets.
Clean the snow off your car before driving:
- Make sure all the windows are clear of snow and ice. Keep two scrapers in your car so your passenger can help out.
- Don’t miss the roof! When your car warms up and you hit the brakes that heavy hunk of snow will slide onto your windshield blocking visibility.
