THE ART OF GETTING HIGH CENTERED IN SNOW

Things get snow-stuck in all kinds of ways, but usually the most pain-in-the-ass is the high center. Simply put, you compact so much snow underneath the bottom of the vehicle that you create (via the pressure of your axles/difs/undercarriage/etc) a solid block of ice that is supporting all the vehicle’s weight. 

Use cauion in uncompacted ground - when saturated it can sink a vehicle to its frame.
