tips for wheeling in snow?

I've recently been venturing off the roads and into the snow and have been having some trouble. The snow around here is maybe 1.5 feet in the deepest i drive in and pretty hard. I usually can go until my tires spin and then i sink. From then on i end up digging and jockeying back and forth just to get back to the road. I have 33x12.50 gt radial m/ts and i do have an e-locker. Anyone have any advice for these conitions that could help? I love wheeling in snow but feel like im not going nealy as far as i could.

Momentum..... Whether its 20 kph or 2 kph ... you need momentum. As soon as you stop, back up and get a little momentum, or else you will sink in.

And yeah, 3' ... that's a lot of snow to be pushing..

For the most part 3' is over exaggerating. The deepest i've actually wheeled in is knee high on me, so maybe 1.5 feet(.5 meter for you oz) . Not sure what i was thinking right there when i put 3'...better go back and edit the OP.

Don't forget the turn your traction control completely off, that will kill the fun in a hurry

when you start to get slowed down in the snow let off the gas and dont hold it down so you dont get stuck and can still back out

Airing down is the first part. Figure out what psi works best. My old Maxxis Bighorns wouldn't grip until 8 PSI sometimes.
