Planning to rent a car from Enterprise for a family day trip to Goverment Camp Ski bowl, checked with enterprise, there cars are having MUD & SNOW Tires but if I put the Chains, and if there are any damage it will not be covered under insurance, so I am sort of into catch 22 situation, of whether to go to Govt camp at all or not, this is our first year in Portland area, and we were waiting to go to Mt Hood to do some snow fun.
My Question is, Do I really need to put on chains even if the car is having a M&S tires, just to go till Govt camp, at this time of the year, I am not going any up then that. If at all, it is required, Is there a possibility that the tire chain damage the car. :(
Other option is to take the Shuttle, but shuttle doesnt stop at Govt camp ski bowl, it goes to Mt hood Meadows, which doesnt have snow tubing/snow shoeing, we are not into Skiing or snow boarding, and are having some sr citizens, with us, so just wanted to go there for snowshoe.
