    I am the first owner of my Prius AWD XLE 2020. I just came back from Winthrop, WA in Apr 2022. On my way to Beaver Lake Trailhead from Winthrop in the morning, my car was able to traverse onto deep snow mountain zone where no other car has been to. My car was the ONLY car leaving tracks behind. Part of the reason was my car was so light, and it literally floated on trimmed snow road. There was this steep slope and my car could not make it through. Time to stop and snowshoe. So I decided to be nice and parked on the side of the road. Little did I know, the side of the road was not trimmed/condensed, so the left side of my car sunk into the snow. I could not get it out. So I started to snowshoe all the way back to State Highway 20 to seek help. Later two local families I met on the way tried to help. But their GMC Denali HD got stuck in the snow WAY BEFORE my car did. Part of the reason was the day got warmer as afternoon set in. So we managed to push the truck out of the snow and walked to my car on foot. We finally pushed my car out of the snow, which took a lot less effort than pushing the truck out of snow. Then we drove and pushed and drove and pushed and finally got my Prius out of the snowy mountain zone. All in all, I was impressed by my 2020 Prius AWD XLE. It did better in the snow than GMC Denali HD the 4WD heavy duty truck did.
