I remember going down that little hill on the taxiway to the FBO at KBWI. It was the dead of winter with fresh snow covering the ice about thirty years ago. Suddenly brakes and nosewheel steering were ineffective. Good for that old GII the reversers worked like a charm to steer and stop. But, it was close. 😉

Most folks in the USA don't believe in winter tires. This is what happens.
