Anything 4WD with snow tires for the winter! I have a Subaru WRX Sti... need to get snow tires for the upcoming winter though. I like the hatchback, I can fit in a lot of stuff even my dog and her kennel!

97% of the people that respond to this thread are going to tell you subaru.  There is an unbelievable amount of people on this site who are in love with Subaru and think it is the only car that can be driven in snow.

The Xterra is a good choice.  Personally I have an Avalanche and it is the perfect vehicle for getting me to the mountain.

Subaru's are amazing in the snow. I personally have a legacy right now and I've never had any problems driving around in snow. If you live in an area that see lots of real snowfall I think Subaru's can't be beat.

basically any 4wd/awd car/wagon/suv/truck with all-season M+S tires or snow tires will do. the 4wd/awd will help with traction in the snow and help you avoid putting on snow chains/cables when everyone else has to stop. just figure in space for passengers and luggage and equipment which probably narrows down to suvs and wagons (no trucks because the backseats are too uncomfortable for long drives to the mountain and no sedans because there's usually less cargo space).

i drive an acura mdx wich comfortably sits 5 passengers with enough cargo space in the back for luggage and equipment. and a roof rack for boards. awd is standard on the mdx.

My CR-V is great for driving up to the mountain. It is AWD and not 4WD and the AWD system on Honday is not the best. Having said that, I've never had a problem and I've never had to put on chains. The thing my friend's love about the CR-V is how roomy and comfortable it is and it still gets pretty good gas mileage for the 400 mile (each way) trip to Mammoth.

no car can compensate for some of the terrible drivers on the road. bad enough on a nice sunny day but add some snow and all bets are off. i dont think my 2010 tsx is qualified for best car but it gets the job done.

I don't think the car matters much...as long as you have decent tires and know how to drive in the snow.  I say that because I've had a Scion Xb for many years now and have never had a problem getting anywhere with it.

Of course 4WD or AWD does make it easier.

I second this. If you have AWD/4WD and you can afford an extra set of tires, I strongly suggest investing in the snow tires or the M+S (mud+snow) tires because having to put on chains or cables really sucks. Just be sure to take off the snow tires when the season is over (or when you are not driving to the mountain) because you don't want to wear out the treads with city driving.

Plus, something with seat warmers is nice too, but not a necessity.

I'm driving a Subaru Legacy.  The AWD helps in getting traction to get moving, but not to mistaken it in helping you stop.

4wd suv's handle nice, the extra ground clearance helps in the deep snow.

I believe driver skill is more important than anything.

I can tell you one thing, it's not the Chrysler Town & Country the rental place gave me when I went to Breckenridge.  Ended up with me and two of my buddies pushing that thing about a mile up the mountain on I-70 back into Denver.  That sucked big time.

Exterra is great if you love getting miserable gas mileage for a car that isn't that fast, isn't that powerful, and isn't that awesome.  Subaru's seem to do the trick, just not a big fan of the styling.  I would think any 4WD/AWD vehicle would be fine.  Especially that Unimog Shaka just posted, that's awesome.

I'm thinking about picking up an Avalanche for next winter.  My 2WD Tacoma definitely gets the job done in the desert, not so much in the snow.

I was in my friend's FX35 with traction control and snow setting on and chains. That took us up Mt Baldy in snowy conditions safely. We saw a lot of cars and trucks on the side having a lot of problems.

Also, was in a 4x4 tacoma in Mammoth...the tail was always slipping out, but my friend was having a blast driving it in the snow.   
Did you google it?

I love my Avalanche, but truthfully any car with decent tires on it and enough ground clearance for the snow conditions will make it just fine.  I drove a Dodge Stratus with snow tires on it for several seasons before getting a truck and never got stuck.

Ha ha! Me too. I have a Scion xB and I've taken it to places that don't require chain control. It's basically a brick on wheels, but it's got enough room to hold my gear. Only problem is that it hates to go uphill. 

If I go someplace snowy or icy, I'll borrow an Acura MDX with AWD and M+S tires. It's HUGE. It's got 2 rows of back seats, so if you aren't carrying anything inside (roof rack), you can ride 8 people. If you are carrying gear inside, you can take between 1 and 4 people (with one half of a back seat down for long stuff like boards or skis.

I love my minivann. I had one when I was 15-25. Think of a better car to go through your adolesence with. You can legally hold 8 people, more if you want to. You can take it pretty much anywhere with a huge pack of friends.
When I had kids, it was a logical step. I'm just going to be selling it before my kids turn 15. Don't want to give them the easy opportunities I had as a kid.

holy crap
I didn't know there was a difference between AWD & 4WD. Thanks for the people that pointed that out.

(http://www.rubicon-trail.com/4WD101/difference_4WD_awd.html if you are interested)

AWD/4WD will get you up the hill
but good tires is what keeps you on the road and provides the traction to slow you down or stop.

Yes, driving skill is important, but if you are barreling down a mountain on bald tires -- regardless of what car you're driving, you're going to slide around.

--

I've driven a lot in the snow and in the mountains:
Mercedes M & S class (suv/sedan)
Subaru Legacy (sedan)
Honda Civic & CRV (sedan & coupe/suv)
Nissan Murano (suv)
Mercury Sable (sedan)
Mitsubishi Expo (van-wagon thingy)

and yes, 4wd cars can help a ton on the ice and some cars were more comfortable than others (4 people + 4 snowboards in a sedan? holy crap) but stopping was all about the tires.
