More awesome pics .


Were you guys dealing with variations of snow hardness?

Up here in Idaho it's either soft snow and slushy or near rock-hard and concrete on a given day.

Snow chains on all four corners do wonders on both snow variants.

I Snow wheel in WA/ OR and the Sierra Nevada mountains. There have been a few times I could have used chains in icy conditions, but don't want to carry the extra weight. Have had to winch a couple of times because of ice, but don't plan on building/using chains.

Almost all of the snow wheelers I know don't carry or use them. We usually don't have a lot of ice. Compacted snow, yes but all manageable on the roads/ trails we are on. I usually snow wheel with about 1.5- 2.0 psi in the tires in severe conditions.

Just before "Soup Bowl" above the trail. Looking at Loon/Pleasant to the right and Spider to the left. The trail in the "Benchmark" area is completely drifted in with 45 degree and steeper snow. Quite the view.

Gonna be a while before it melts off but temps have come up considerably in the past few days so who knows.

Is WWS open? There's a county Road Closed sign between the Loon turnoff and Airport Flats.
