the plastic can be a little more brittle, but otherwise have at it! I have left it in the garage to thaw out as well as just rinsed it off in the shower after.

Make sure you clean the car when done and you'll find that paddles or chains come in handy.

Im rigging my son's Bandit with some small (Jack?) chain you can
get usually at your local hardware store for about .60-1$ft.
I used about 7ft for the rear.
There are some how-to's on youtube.
I had studs originally - but they pulled out because I had
no nuts on the backs of 'em. Check out "bandit ski mod" thread.
& nice vid adidas!
