My 206 cm Salomon classic Nordic (cross country) skis and Swix Nordic (cross country) poles fit just great in my Smart Car. There is even room for my 12-year-old son and his Nordic ski gear. I can also fit 60 pairs of Nordic Walking Poles in my new SMART car as I travel around hosting Nordic Walking Clinics.
We have had great snow for Nordic Skiing - cross country skiing here in northern Michigan. We have been cross country skiing everyday since Nov. 17th!
The SMART Car is fantastic in the snow and we have had tons of snow so far this season. It is also FUN to drive!
I picked up my SMART Car in August down in the Detroit area - 5 hours south. The SMART car is inexpensive like the old VW Beetle, good in the snow and FUN to drive, but that is where the similarities to the old VW Beetle end. The SMART Car has a 5 Star crash rating, gets almost 50 mpg and has a super heater/defroster. I have snow tires on my SMART Car and all SMART Cars are equipped with ESP (anti skid) and anti-lock brakes – good stuff for winter driving!
We love our new SMART Car so much we order another one - 12 month plus waiting period (bummer).
Think snow and have FUN xc skiing, Nordic Walking and driving!
