We had 2-3 feet when I was out last weekend. Kinda ugly snow, icy sugary but this week we got another dump and should be pretty good but I’m away at work.

Not sure what everyone else has right now but Mt. Rose Nevada has about 30 inches at the Ski Resort, up on the top, it's drifted in 3-4 feet with around 2-3 feet on the level.

We've got a good 4-8 inches so far. We went out for a couple hours yesterday. I tried pretty hard and spun the tires once!

Went out for a couple hours today, snow was really slipery and packy. Not enough to worry about getting to deep yet though.

Went out Sunday for a while, still not really deep, but a good time for sure. Took out some DD type rigs that all did pretty well. Only gave one guy a tug right at the top of a big hill.

You always run your front tires backwards? I was wondering if it might help in the snow, just never tried it.

In the right snow conditions it helps. Most of the time it makes little difference.

Went up for a look see on Sunday. Not much snow for this time of year. I missed the big early season dumps this year
