    This is how much snow we got last season in Tahoe.

    I'll give you that driving through that much PA snow is impossible. I really have no idea as I've never been there. But I've driven in 20+ inches countless times growing up in CO and living in Tahoe... to say that Garrett and I don't know what I'm talking about is rather ridiculous. Hell, my house growing up was at the top of a mile long dirt road that my family and my neighbors had to plow ourselves... there were plenty of times where that hadn't been done by the time I had to leave for school. I can remember several times driving my parents Toyota Highlander through unplowed, untracked, thigh-deep snow all the way to the highway... felt kinda like skiing in powder actually.

    Damn!.. That's a pretty awesome winter last year. That picture makes me sad though. I can't wait for snow to come into the Reno/Tahoe area. This is the first season I'm snowboarding and they're forecasting a dry western winter. Snow please come!

    Honestly it seems like every winter there are people saying it's never gonna snow. I've already gotten in the first powder run of the year up on Rose a couple weeks ago and I've heard rumors of a 2nd La Nina like last year. Shouldn't be long now

    So it was you !!! Who tainted the Mt. Rose slopes several weeks ago lol jk. My coworkers and I were watching the mountain cams keenly while it was snowing. Upon closer look the mountain looked like it's been carved already. I bet that was fun having the mountain to yourself .

    Oh man, I wish I had been one of those. We just went to the summit of the pass and hiked up morning after the first snow before class. I saw those tracks too though... must have been some sick runs. There were a ton of people out there for almost a week though, setting up boxes and jibs and such right out of the summit parking lot.

    I'll verify that I've driven my last TWO STIs through PA and NJ snow of upwards of 24 inches without any problems. 350z...not so much

    Impossible.

    I suspect that the roads may have been plowed.

    I've been living in this area for 26 years now (only some count though since I moved to the area when I was 3)...but I'm pretty sure I know what the difference between plowed and not plowed is...

    Here was a measured 15 inch storm...was at my parents house. I was plowed IN deeper.

    So may doubters in here lol. My WRX with winter tires made all sorts of 4x4/AWD trucks/suvs cry last winter. It's awesome to watch the drivers jaw drop in disbelief that a small car is plowing though while their trucks are stuck on the side of the road.

    But the streets are plowed. You didn't drive across any states in 24 inches of snow, you drove in a 24 inch snowstorm on plowed roads. 24 inches is as tall as your tires. Its a subaru, not a submarine.

    That's what I was getting at with my post. I don't doubt my car one bit, just being realistic about it. My gf had an impreza with winter tires that I always put to the test drifting and playing off road in snow storms. Ya, you can make it through some deep snow for a short distance if it's fresh and you have momentum but you ARE NOT driving any CAR that's 7 inches off the ground, Subaru or not in 24+ inches of snow very far unless it's down hill the entire way.

    Before this car I've always owned a truck and did a decent amount of off roading in winter after we got a big snow storm. A few of my friends had lifts and big tires but I just had 4 studded tires and put 250lbs of sand bags in the bed and my truck went awesome in deep snow but once you got into the range of 24+ inches it started to struggle.

    Well, one time I drove in >24 inches of water without problems.. of course once I could see my headlights shining under water I decided it was a bad idea, backed up, pulled out a blanket and took a nap in the drivers seat till the water receded.
