535 xdrive in snow

I am looking at spending considerable amount of time in northern NH during winter season. Could someone share their experience with 535 xdrive in snow?

535xi is great in the snow assuming you are not going to go into anything deep.

All seasons are OK for most situations, but get yourself some proper snows if you expect to do a lot of winter driving in snow country.

I'm in the area. All seasons are fine, if you don't plan on getting into it too deep. But, of course, nothing beats a set of winters. I'm in Boston, so I really don't need winters.


And 535xi should be an awesome winter mobile.

We had a bit of a snow storm in NYC area recently. My 550 xdrive with Michelin All Seasons Performed very well in about 2 inches of snow on the roads. I was truly impressed, especially as I climbed hills that front wheels drive vehicles were having an incredibly tough time. Amazing vehicle - truly pleased.

Believe it or not my rear drive 535 with the regular Goodyear tires has been great here in Chicago.
