    So I went out wheeling yesterday in the snow. I had a CJ and TJ out with me as well as an ATV. The trail was going good. There were a lot of mud holes and the trail was pretty easy. Then we came to a hill that as we went up, had too much snow that was wet, so the tires just turned in to skates. TJ tried winching up the hill but his battery died so then we had to try and get the battery jumped. To get to him up the hill the CJ made a run up and ended up making it most of the way up but not enough to get to the TJ. Eventually we got the TJ back up and running and ended up taking a different route and made it to the top. :gr_grin::gr_grin::gr_grin:

    Looks like fun.
    And yeah; wet snow turns to snot. Usually, the colder the better for traction on snowy trails.

    Colorado has been having some bipolar weather lately. 60 during the week and then down to the 30's with snow on the weekend. I'm in the denver area and normally we get cold dry snow, but as of late it has all been wet snow. We are at about 5280' in elevation and the tail was at above 7000' above sea level.
