    You're gonna want the lights mounted pretty low then , or else it will just reflect back in the snow

    Mine are 100w each, no covers. I have never been stopped, or hassled about them in NS or on any of my road trips to calgary. I run them on the road when there is no other traffic and make sure to flick them off when I see other vehicles.
    Saved my ass a few times in northern onterrible. Up there I saw more deer than trees for Christ sake.

    I believe Alberta law is the same as BC law regarding lights. 2 headlights and 2 fog lights only. The rest must be covered on road.

    That said, on my F150 I have a pair of offroad lights on the grille guard that have never been covered in 6 years, and I've never had a problem with the law. I also don't turn them on when I'm just driving on the road.

    Actually they might blind you more in a blizzard (light reflects back). But they are handy for seeing those darn moose. People up here use them all the time, just dim them for oncoming traffic. Big Trucks (18whls) up here have enough to make it look like day. I assumed a similar situation there. FWIW
