Watch the Polaris Slingshot Drive Through the Snow

I'm not sure that the Slingshot is a winter vehicle, but that isn't going to stop people. Check out this video where Scott Jordan of SCOTTeVest takes out the SLingshot in the snow.

Anything you notice in the video? Do you think that the Slingshot can hold its own in the snow?

Ahhh as we've seen, no...

Fat rear tires are ABYSMAL in the snow, you want as narrow as possible to cut through the snow to the bottom layer of tarmac, same follows for the front tire. Sticky Summer rubber is hard as granite I'm sure and all that is without mentioning YOURE IN AN OPEN COCKPIT.

Obviously it doesn't work out so well when it actually is snowing, and once its cold it also wouldn't be much fun at all, but I am just nominally curious about how it can handle in snowy conditions. I'm not every going to drive this thing in the snow, but I am curious about what it can and can't do.
