Popular Subaru accessories for the winter

The 2020 Subaru Outback, Forester, or Crosstrek right from the factory all make a great adventure rig for winter excursions. But during the winter you might want to go a little farther after a day of snowboarding, cross-country skiing, or snowshoeing. You can do some camping and spend a few more days in the high country if you find all the motels full of out-of-town vacationers. Most people choose to hibernate for the winter and really come outside on the weekends, but for those adventure seekers, a Subaru vehicle and Subaru accessories can take you to those hard to reach snowy areas. If you are looking for some of the most popular Subaru accessories for the winter, then you have come to the right place. In this blog by Pfaff Subaru, we talk about some of the most popular accessories that you can outfit your Subaru with for winter adventures! 

All-terrain winter tires 

You will want to take off your all-season tires soon and replace them with a good set of All-Terrain Winter tires. This will allow you to have extra grip in deep snow and on icy surfaces and get to your destination safely. You can put your all-season rubber on next spring and get at least two seasons from the winter treads. Our parts and service department at Pfaff Subaru can help you choose the best all-terrain tires for your type of winter driving needs. 

Roof racks for storage 

The Subaru Outback, Forester and Crosstrek are compact SUVs and you’ll want the extra cargo carrying ability with a roof rack. There are quite a few options for your vehicle, and depending on your need, there are platform racks that have accessories such as shovel and ax holders, light brackets, tire tie-downs and more. 

Rooftop tent 

A rooftop tent is a great way to be able to extend your days on the slope without having to pay for an expensive hotel room near the resort, especially during the busiest times when vacationers have descended on your local ski area and taken all the rooms. A rooftop tent is easy to install, gets you off the cold ground and can be used in a Walmart parking lot.

A trailer hitch 

A trailer hitch will allow you to carry a storage box behind your Subaru Outback, Forester or Crosstrek for ski gear and to nicely stow away your roof-top tent. You might want to get the highest class II hitch in case you do want to pull a small camper. When you want to hit the trails next summer you’ll be set and can easily add a trail bike carrier for multi-use.

For those winter adventurers out there, a Subaru vehicle is a great option to take you deep into the bush in the winter. However, along with your Subaru vehicle, there are plenty of Subaru accessories available to you that can make your winter adventure more convenient and comfortable.
