So I stole supplies off a yacht at night in the snow and it was like I was in space. You couldn’t see a damn thing then all of a sudden boom there’s the yacht. The helis that came to shoot me kept dipping in and out of darkness. It was great.

I wish there was a way to know you’re getting warmer on getting the Chiliad spawn. I’ve done this last time and I got the spawn, but no tattoo. I’m hoping this doesn’t mean I can’t get the spawn again.

 

Edit: It just happened!!!

How did you get this to spawn? :)

I'm on PS4 and it's still snowing, not sure why some are having some snow-less lobbies. Then again, i went into invite only, so it could be public sessions having these issues.

Does it snow if you were to Golf and play Tennis? That'll be kinda cool. 

I know it snows in golf but I don't play tennis.

One of the 'cool' things about the snow is that you can land a helicopter with skids (not wheels) at high speed on a road or runway and then ski along for a surprisingly long distance. As long as you touch down gently and don't crash into anything then it doesn't damage the helicopter, even if you hit the ground at full speed.

 

You can also ski down slopes by cutting the engine to kill the lift, although this is obviously a bit riskier. I've yet to pull this one off without it ending badly. 

 

It would make a good freeroam competition IMO. Longest distance helicopter skiing!

You can also throw snowballs at a wall to make your own art. 

 

Here's my first attempt, a high-class work I am sure you will agree and in honor of R*'s love of all things phallic. Created on the wall next to the Casino entrance.

Thanks for the reminder, I forgot I have a bunch of new off road vehicles I've yet to play with in the snow and on the mountains specifically. Caracara 4×4, Everon, Scarab, and my trusty Riata should keep me occupado until the roads are dry again. I've already spent my last 2 long play sessions running rally playlists for the snow. Aside from that the stuff really is a hindrance as far as trying to do any FR business or heisting. Sure, it looks pretty but the visibility is so poor that it gets very old very quickly, especially as someone whose been playing since 2014. I'll try to bare in mind that there are lots of newer players who don't feel the same way lol.

I’m probably the only person that is sick to the balls with snow. Hate it. I thought it was meant to be gone today?

It will probably be here until Thursday morning. Not too bad, I’m kinda hoping the don’t bring it back for New Years though.

Is it just me, or was the snow nerfed this year? It doesn't seem to have as much of an impact on driving as it used to.

I thought the same thing,  the roads don’t seem as icy to me as years past.  Maybe it’s just me but I haven’t had the spin outs like I was expecting.

A lot of the folks in my crew noticed this. Some vehicles seemed to have even better traction, or maybe I should say, are easier to drive such as the RC bandit.

At least I wasn’t the only person thinking this.  Cars like the mamba are slippery anyway but most others seem to have better traction/easier recovery even at high speeds.  There’s definitely a snow effect but not as bad as years prior to me.

Nope, you're not the only one, but considering how most forumers are not from snowy areas and playing on consoles they're pretty happy with it. On PC snow cripples the graphics significantly IMO. I'm seeing a week of snow every month in Horizon 4 and have less issues with that, because it's a proper snow with much different handling model, icy lakes and visuals are top notch. This snow is nothing but a small band-aid bonus to make the game feel different and a lot of people like it, because they're sick as hell from the same map for 6 years and no next GTA in sight.

I had 'take part in snowball battle' daily objective yesterday or something - does anyone know how do you complete that? Throwing snowballs at NPCs didn't work and since I usually play alone, I haven't bothered to check with other people.

Sultan Classics as well so those should be fun to throw around. 

Well I didn't get to find this out since my Sultans turned into Kurumas.

I never understand the animosity towards the annual snow appearance from some. It is only present for a few days and makes for a nice change to the other 350-odd days of the year that it isn't here.

 

"I can't drive my cars!"     "I can't do my deliveries!" 

 

Do something else then, and wait until the snow goes. 

 

I personally think the snow makes the map look great. It would be nice to have the choice to enter either "Winter" or "Summer" sessions all year round.

And once again I could barely enjoy the snow, because it's removed now! 🙄 I hate when they do that. Why can't they keep the snow 2 weeks without a damn interruption?!

It normally comes back for New Year but it is a shame they don't leave it on through the holidays.

Too many new players, all the time, who wouldn't stick around through 2 solid weeks of this to get to the part they can play. Don't forget they have sh*tty flying and driving stats and then all of a sudden they're in a f*cking whiteout throwing their controller at the tv
