Cooper discoverer AT3 in snow

Has anybody used the cooper discoverer at3's in snow? If so how did they do?
I'm looking at visiting the Highlands at the end of Jan/ beginning of Feb and don't fancy getting halfway up hill and sliding back down again Laughing

I am presuming that there will be snow at that time of year? Whistle

Cheers

There may or may not be snow at that time (last few years more not than may) but they have an annoying habit of clearing the roads up here, in a far more sufficient way than down sauff has ever experienced. We also have electricity and colour TV!! Shocked Shocked

I've been running a set of Cooper weather master wsc for a year. I had to tow a Citroen c3 up hill in 4" of snow. No problem! total confidence in them. Granted.. in summer they are not as good as the stock Scorpions but you just alter your driving to suit.

I bought them off camskill.co.uk for ยฃ130 - 140 each...

I'm aware it will go most places on normal tyres however I only have a set of Cooper's. The reason I asked was because I went out in a 90 on mud terrains in snow and ice and they were horrendous and didn't want the same happening in the disco Thumbs Up

I live on the NC500 and my wife drives her mid engined rear wheel drive MR2 on summer tyres all year round so I am sure youโ€™re Landie will be fine no matter what tyres you have.
