I live in Calgary Alberta and I use Goodyear's F1 GS-D3 for summer and 
the Ultra Grip GW2 for winters.  I find that the UG GW2's to be an 
excellent winter tire.  The winter weather conditions here in Calgary 
can vary between +10 celcius to -30.  This kind of weather can destroy 
Blizzaks in one season.  The GW2's have about 20,000 kms on them and 
show very little wear.  Overall, an excellent tire.
