    New owner here.

    I know it is not winter in most places but..........

    I'm looking for driving tips to contend with desending down slippery snow covered hills. Searches have come up empty.

    I've found out the the Prius does not have a Low gear (I know about the B feature)

    Testing so far, I've learned that the B is about between gears 2 and 3 (regular car)

    If braking going down (slippery surfaces) will the Vehicle Stability/Traction features have any effect??

    Brake and steer gently. Stability control should help. (I haven't tested it myself)

    The post was from 2007. I certainly hope they have figured it out by now.
