Not enough to really get into yet here. Been warm storms, so more wet vs. snow. Kind of a good thing as I don't have my rig ready yet.

Dang, we definitely aren't getting shit here. Even the peaks well over 8k feet near Tahoe had barely a dusting.

What elevation are you guys seeing snow at?

Darland is almost 7K FT but we have snow at 4K feet after this weekend. There's probably 3ft+ of snow above 6K FT in the mountains already, move on up here

Curious how that side by side compares to the Jeeps, better worse in the white stuff?

What Joe said (we have Snow above 4,000', more the higher you go, but it's just getting started) and you're welcome up here too.

Nice pic, Jeep's looking good (like how you tucked in the winch) and so is the snow.

Cheers D

Rzr is better in everything but the deep snow. They are downright cheating when it comes to spring snow, they fly right across the top. My buddy just put 32x10R14 on raceline beadlocks before the trip, he said they are awesome.

If I had a rzr I'd get the superatv portals and throw on a set of bias 33x13.5 interco STS's, I think they'd be the ticket

Thanks. It was definitely worth the work of cutting the front crossmember out and tucking it in. Front approach angle is killed without it.

Kind of weird, it's almost mid Nov. & we got 50-60 degree weather here..We're usually coated in a light snow by now, with at least 1ft in the mountains.

More then we got. Raining like a bitch at 48 degree right now.

& yes, it's amazing up here. I encourage no one to live there though, makes it nicer for us.

I'm sure I'll "find it pretty horrible" when I move up. I'll definitely make sure to tell all my Californians the same as well.
