I live and drive in Seattle and head to the mountains every weekend in the winter to ski, and need to be able to drive well in deep snow and/or ice. I would like to stick with an all season tire and I am between the Yokohama Geolanders and the Bridgestone Ecopias. Any opinions or experiences are much appreciated!

Hello,
what geolandar are you talking about? if it is The G91F I'd say anything is better than this cr*p
it is the 2nd forester I replace them and both times it has been a shock to see how good the new tires are (or rather how bad the old ones were.)
I changed with 6mm of sculpture left so it is not that they were worn out... they are just sh*t tires.

Instead on one forester I've gone with winter tires nokian WRSUV3...and left them on even in summer... still better than the yoko g91F
and on the other forester I went with the goodyear vector 4 seasons gen 2... they are incredible and rated 3pms to allow us to go skiing without needing chains (recognized as winter tires by our standards) I haven't tested them yet on snow but under a pooring rain you can take the curves faster and safer tan the yoko could on dry pavement so this 4 seasons are a real pleasure tu use

I see a few references of bridgestone ecopia over here... you did not specified neither the precise reference you thinking of

Advantage of 4 seasons: if you don't live in a very snowy area, you don't have to ignore a tpms light on the dashboard or buy tpms sensors for a second set of wheels...
