Looking at the weather forecast, looks like I'll be spending my Friday cleaning the car and putting her under the cover for hibernation...

What's everyone's normal winter maintenance? Here's what I'm thinking...

Oil change
Full detail
Pull and check plugs
Full tank of fuel
Clean air filter
Baking soda box on the floor
Cover

Then till I can take her back out in the spring

Full synthetic oil change + car cover

What I do from there is park it in an underground parking lot. I start it once every 1-2 weeks and drive it for about 30 minutes strictly underground. I can get it to around 20 miles per hour max 1st/2nd gear. That get's her going a bit.

That's how I baby my baby for the winter. Never driven outside in the snow.

Topped it off with Shell 93 Octane
Parked it

Pulled the e-brake
Mist and wiped it
Stared at it for about 20 minutes
Put a cover on it and put up its wall (see pic)

Check oil
Slap on four winter wheels with snow tires
Check tire pressure
Drive

Actually, I try to drive very little in the winter, especially if there is salt on the ground.
I managed to go half the winter last year without getting any dirt on the car whatsoever.
