I agree the snow is also about taking on the conditions. It is good to develop your skills. Assuming one can drive fairly good without the snow. 😉

Oh man, I know what you mean. Next version of gta Mate, I can’t wait. Driving home for Christmas.

I just bought a seriously discounted Savestra and based on your 964 Turbo front clip avatar, you and I enjoy snow driving as much as anyone.  Cheers man

 

*edit--it's dark green with a yellow stripe and even though I went through every mod, I chose only the horizontal slat front grille [with all 4 headlights] and small ducktail.  It's gorgeous and great fun

Using the Stromberg like a sled by retracting the wheels to go into submarine mode and go down the side of Mt. Chiliad.

I love snow, in both.

 

The game manages to capture the atmosphere of snowy weather really well I think, and I think that is due to the good lighting. There is something pretty great about being on a quiet street in Paleto Bay at dusk, walking the streets of Los Santos at night or a hike around Mount Gordo and the lake early in the morning.

Yh I think R* did a good job with capture the atmosphere of snowy weather and I also think the lightning have much impact on that. 

 

I live in a country where we usually have snow 4-6 month a year and I both hate it and like it irl but love it in game

I'm still on PS3, so no no Stromberg for me, but that's a cool idea. 

 

I might try it with a plane or helicopter.  

 

Thanks for the inspiration!

You can try it with any supercar, remove the bulletproof wheels and pop them all.

Thanks for the suggestion, but I no longer own a supercar. 

 

I think a Pigalle would slide well upside down and backwards. You'd have to ride it like a surfboard, though...

 

 

 

 

 

...okay, maybe not. 😛

I wouldn't be surprised if some people would wish to throw a snowball right in my face after they've finished reading my comment, but I'll dare to say it anyway. 

 

I wish that snow would last at least 1-2 weeks, because I don't have enough free time to enjoy the snow in those days when it usually appears in GTA:O.

I'm so excited!

 

Look at the beam of light shining on the tree - it's almost magical enough to make you forget about the douchebag creeping up behind you on his MKII.

As a native Russian who have lived in Quebec I approve this message. Snow is nice, until it affects your everyday life beyond certain point. Plus, it's quite taxing: heat, gas, car maintenance, clothing, bones and health...

I'm in Minnesota.  Snow is great until late March when it's still snowing a foot at a time and there is no end in sight.

Oh, North Americans at least know how to clean the roads! In Russia it's a real nightmare, people there can't really get their heads over the fact that winter comes every year and it's necessary to learn on the previous mistakes.

I lost all of my screenshots (including some nice snow pics) from the past 3-1/2 years when I had to reinitialize my PS4. It freaked out a few weeks ago.

 

I'm looking forward to making some new ones. :) I wish it would last a week.

Getting snowflakes (but no snow textures) in SP already? Not sure if this was the effect of some modder (i got it after getting disconnected from online) or if snow has several stages now? see pic below in full size to see the snowflakes

Snow will come to Gta Online on the 24th, 25th. Then return for the 31st and 1st (2020). The Festive surprise update will land just before Christmas, being the 19th.

The snow, since 2014, has always been on the 24th, 25th, then later return on the 31st and Jan 1st.
2014
''Those dreaming of a white Christmas are in luck as the forecast calls for the extremely rare phenomenon of San Andreas Snowfall to hit on a few special days this holiday season. Be on the lookout and ready to round up your Crew for a friendly Snowball fight, but be forewarned, those icy little suckers can pack a wallop.''

Those days are the 24th when snow is added into Online and gone at the end of the 25th or 26th of December. Snow returns on the 31st and gone at the end of the 1st of January or 2nd.

''Be sure to log in on Christmas Eve to receive your first holiday gift of the season – which includes a new festive Sweater, fireworks and more – and keep your eyes on the skies as the experts are predicting an incoming cold front this Friday that brings with it the rare Los Santos snowfall phenomenon.''

Mmm, i must be mistaken then. Since '14 it's always been those 4 dates. Last year it must have came that weekend.

'17 too? Jeez, lol. 

It's possible they might do that this year, but the 24th is on a Tuesday, could be just on the 24th like it used to be. Who knows really.

Me and my lad did a few of these last year, just for fun

 

Fly two small planes (Mammatus, Cuban etc) in formation at night through the snowstorm in first person view, from LSIA to Grapeseed and land them. You can't see anything, so you have to use radar and instruments to navigate. Try and stay in visual sight of each other.

 

Have a friend go to Raton Canyon wilderness somewhere at night, then get your friend to go Ghost Organisation and stand still. If you take a helicopter then from the police station in Paleto Bay, you have three minutes to find him in a search and rescue mission before he "freezes to death". The person on the ground can guide in the heli if you can speak to each other, or you can use flares, or you can mix it up with thermal goggles or night vision. Or you can land and search with the torch. Whatever you like.
