The challenge of winter driving awaits. "Vermont Edition" gets you ready for the excitement ahead.

Snow and ice are fantastic for skiing, riding, skating and sledding. But while sliding along at speed can be fun on hillsides and frozen ponds, those same properties can make driving in the winter a challenge.

Vermont Edition gets you prepped for the tricky traffic ahead by understanding the science of snow tires, winter driving strategies and a look at what plans VTrans has for salting and brining the roadways during our icy season.

We're joined by Hans Dyhrman of Nokian Tyres North America, Vermont State Police Lieutenant John Flannigan and Dave Blackmore of VTrans

Broadcast live on Thursday, Nov. 30, 2017 at noon; rebroadcast at 7 p.m.
