The snow does get deep and but in the last few years there have only been a few times it has got over 20 inches. Last year it only happened once and only stayed for about a week, snow at my cottage between Rose City and Mio was about 30 inches, accumulated for the season.
Yeah we had an xj with 6 inches of lift but not locked last year.. Didn't do to bad.. Never got stuck (knock on wood!!) lol

A lot depends on the trail and the trail conditions. As I stated my Friday night run will be fine for you. My intent is some tight wheeling but no real difficult stuff. Just a fun night in the woods. Even with deep snow, if you're further back in the pack it'll be packed for you by the time you get to it. Then you may contend with ice but that doesn't care what your lift and tire size is.

I'm game for your Friday night run!

Just put the 40" iroks back on cause the 44" boggers seemed to float to much with the small snow I have around the house. Depends how much snow we get to see what tire combo to run... Damn near got stuck on flat, packed slippery snow with the boggers.

looks like we dont have to worry about the snow depth for the stockers, but maybe ice again. 50 degrees and rain this weekend, then a quick drop below freezing on monday.

We are two and a half weeks out. I'm not worried. It's fun with or without snow!

Exactly! We picked up a couple spots on our last pre run that might be too dangerous to even run with snow on them!!! I'll take the not so brave on the bypasses

I can run tail on one. Wasn't able to help out as much as I wanted this year. Never/ wasn't able to pre-run any thing this year. Hopefully next year I can lead. I know my help will be needed more and more and am glad to help where I can.

I heard that! I only have four more days to work on mine because I'm only home on the weekends. Still have to do some welding, wiring, and wrenching. I feel like I'm always cramming everything in before every trip we do!
