    When driving(playing) in snow covered areas with packed snow piles and no sign of pavement for long periods of time. Is it best to lower the tire presure like do when driving on the beach or 4wheelin in the woods?

    If you're in 4wd and pulling through just fine, no need to lower the pressure. Why waste the time to have to refill the tires with air if you don't need to? If you're going off-roading in the snow and getting stuck in the cold conditions would be dangerous, then I'd lower the pressure to make sure you don't get stuck or end up going off the trail.
