So took the Model X across Snoqualmie Pass in Seattle this weekend. Everything worked well, I was really worried about the charge level but the car worked great. One thing was weird, though. As we were crossing the pass, it was snowing/raining and freezing. With the wipers on, there was a HUGE buildup of snow on the bottom side of the wipers. As they tried to wipe, they'd leave a slushy mess going one way and clean going the other. This was distracting as you might imagine, especially taking my car in these conditions for the first time. I assume that the snow built up prior to turning on the wipers for the first time? I finally fixed things by turning off the wipers, then turning them on FULL blast which flung the ice/snow balls off into the adjacent lane. This seemed to work. Just curious if anyone has observed this. Don't know of anything that I can do as the driver, might just be a design 'feature' with the way the wipers are place in relation to the frunk and windshield. Thanks!
