And with consumers taking on more and more do it yourself projects, the team at AutoPartsWarehouse.com has compiled a list of the Top SKI-IY Projects for the Winter Season to prepare for those upcoming ski trips, snowboarding trips, and beyond.

Before attempting any vehicle service or repair, consumers should always consult their vehicle owner's manual
In addition to keeping all the items that will ensure a comfortable ski or snowboarding trip, drivers should remember the golden rules for driving in cold weather: remove snow and ice from the vehicle before driving; accelerate slowly; reduce speed; allow for much greater distances when driving behind other vehicles; know the brakes (for older vehicles without ABS, continuously pump brake pedal, for new vehicles with ABS, hold brake firmly); take turns slowly; continuously scan for potential road hazards, and be aware of other drivers.2
