Snow Wheeling: 2013-2014 Season

Fortune Creek, WA

I never take pictures when wheeling, but actually did yesterday, so thought I would share.

I love snow wheelin, unfortunately most of mine was done while pullin a snowmobile trailer. Either way, it's a whole new level of pucker when you're sliding sideways on the side a of a hill in the snow!

What is this "snow" you speak of? It looks a bit like the white sandy beaches of Florida. Hmm, perhaps I will see some of this mystery substance in our trip to CO.

I have jeeps. I do shit to them.

It looks like you guys broke your own trail. What size tires you running and what's the depth of the snow? What's the most you'd be comfortable plowing through?

I've pushed through snow halfway up my grill but have also been stuck in 6 inches of snow. It all depends on what's underneath and how heavy the snow is...but it's all fun!

Yeah, we were trail blazing... Snow was about 2 feet deep at the top.

Like jrider says, it really depends on the type of snow (powder, wet, etc), but you can go through some really deep stuff. We have been in 4ft plus before with rigs on 35s-40s. Lockers are basically mandatory in deep snow.

If it is really deep, it is slow going - We end up pushing snow forward, backing up, and then getting momentum and going forward again. The key is a big foot print. In deep stuff I run 5 PSI, but the guys with beadlocks and double beadlocks will go as low as 0 PSI.

Been out a few times recently. A little change of pace here... It snowed and then warmed up a bunch and then froze over and then warmed up again... creating a nice soft corn snow that was easy to cruise through

Got deeper as we kept going so had to switch to four low.. still cruising pretty good, though. Pretty bad ass scenery. I wish it was a better camera

Weird snow
