Edmunds headquarters might be a few minutes away from the beach, but only two hours in the opposite direction are ski resorts. That got us thinking: what is the best car for a ski vacation? To find out, Edmunds editors James Riswick and Mike Magrath were tasked with finding the vehicle they thought would do best on a ski trip.
James picked the Ford Flex EcoBoost while Mike chose a Subaru Outback. Beyond these cars, they talk about what types of features are important for those who frequently take trips into the mountains. This includes what type of ski rack to get, so they fitted their cars with racks by Yakima and Thule.
