On the Grossglockner, when it was snowing/raining, the fog was so bad I had to keep the speed low.

On the Kaunternal trip, it was raining steadily on the way up the valley, but visibility was fine. I was also the only one on the road. There are 39 switchbacks (I find it interesting they're numbered). I pushed the car very hard in the corners and I couldn't get the car to skid. Although both up and back gave me 78 sharp corners to practice on, I bet a better driver could get the car to break loose. But that point was well beyond my comfort level. Again, I'm no expert driver.
