what emergency supplies do you pack in your car for winter driving?

Jump to last reply

Im not talking ala man vs wild style here but important is it to have some emergency gear for winter driving in canada?

i gather that youd need a shovel...good gloves and warm outer gear and boots and i have heard that a single candle can keep you warm enough

im not anticipating any emergency really but OH is going to be driving from banff and lake louise daily to ski and im sure he will be returning at dusk or later ...he is canadian born and has been skiing in canada all his life but id like to pack some things from home if need be to keep in the rental car, if you locals believe it is necessary...i

ill kick off the list
feel free to add:

1. my own collapsable battery-powered snow-plow
2. ranger with his own snow-plow ( he can also be the informative guide)

ok thats about it i reckon- im

over to you more experienced folk now!
