I would have assumed in Canada that kind of car apocalypse doesn't happen often due to a large majority of the population being very experienced with winter driving. Is that a bad assumption?
Not sure if experience was the deciding factor. This type of weather is not that untypical in Colorado during a "normal" winter. If i were to hazard a guess it's that people did not believe the forcasted storm could happen in mid March, especially after days of nice weather. Nor were they familiar with the term bomb cyclone.

As you yourself noted, not even a snowplow TRUCK could traverse that mess and those drivers are trained professionals in a vehicle heavy and slow enough to travel on ice and snow.

White out blizzards leave you blind, unable to even see the end of your own vehicle much less the road in front of you.
