I spent all Thanksgiving playing around offroad in my Jeep, and these tires work like magic in the snow. Blazing new trails at street pressure, they're not really distinguishable from other tires, but aired down to 20lbs they really start coming into their element.
Once I got up to 8,000 feet elevation, the snow started getting cold and deep and 20lbs of air wasn't cutting it, so I aired down to 12lbs and these tires became a whole new animal. I didn't realize just how hard they were pulling my Jeep through the snow until I backed up and saw the huge piles of snow I was plowing forward as both axles were dragging underneath the snow.
I think the aggressive A/T or mild M/T tread pattern is optimal for Sierra Nevada snow conditions. The open tread allows the tires to shed snow readily while still retaining a lot of biding edges. The Kedge Grip seems to really grab the snow hard so that the tread blocks can work better to find traction instead of simply relying on the voids between the treads for traction.
I've lived in snow country my whole life, and I am truly impressed with how much traction these Guard Dogs have in the snow.
