How To Do Donuts In The Snow
Under what conditions and how are snow rollers formed?
Also known as “snow bales”, “wind snowballs”, or “snow doughnuts”, snow rollers are formed when the wind pushes fresh, wetter snow along the ground. The end result is a hollow cylinder of snow that can vary in size.
Are snow rollers rare?
A snow roller is a rare meteorological phenomenon in which cylindrical snowballs (looks more like a white donut) are formed naturally as chunks of snow roll down hill or are blown along the ground by the wind, picking up further snow along the way, in much the same way that the large snowballs used in snowmen are made.
Can drifting snow damage your car?
If you drift on snow and the tires hit dry pavement and get traction, that could do damage.
What gear is best for donuts?
Put your car into first gear.
Pull the gear shift, either next to your steering wheel or your right leg, and shift it to first gear. Then gradually press on the accelerator and drive forward slowly. As your car picks up some speed (15-20 mph) begin to turn your steering wheel in the direction you want your donut to go.
Can you drift an AWD car in the snow?

Can you do donuts on ice?
Doughnuts are more easily performed on wet and frozen surfaces (ice and snow), as well as on loose surfaces, such as dirt. When performed in the snow, it is more often done to have fun than it is to make an earnest attempt at creating the circular skid mark pattern.
