Q:
I'm planning a ski trip soon and will be traveling through some mountains--where snowy roads can be treacherous. What type of gear does everyone carry in their trunk in case they get stuck?

These answers are all valid.

You should also include TIRE CHAINS for all drive-wheels, and try them out for a good fit BEFORE you start out. Then add a sturdy snow shovel.

Food, water, spare clothing, thermal blankets, fire, knife and communications. Some form of entertainment can also be just as important to keep your spirits up or to keep small children occupied.

A blanket would be a must, also catlitter for traction. I think the best thing to have in this day and age is a good cell phone, or if there is no cell coverage where you will be a good satellight phone.
