No, youll be lucky to move in that deep, we have like a foot and its takes like 3rd gear wide open to move good and be careful, dont let just one front tire catch deep snow ;)

We had 16 inches here and I couldn't go anywhere on my stock tires...try paddles maybe?

We had about a foot. I have studded turf eater tires, my body the stock dunlops. It worked out fine but the studded turf eaters make much better snow tires. It's a pretty small tight track so after a few passes we made a nice little trail. Here is a few pics.

No way.... the front end basically plows into the deep snow and you'll get stuck. Like this!
