Or wait for the plow(s) to come?

Can't wait to see all the pics and videos! Only expecting 3 to 6 inches where I live.

It depends if it's light fluffy snow or heavy wet stuff.

If it's light and fluffy...which is probably is if it's 30"...but not 100% of the time (i've seen it change over mid-way, towards the end, etc)...then you've got a lot of freedom for how much you can drive through.

If it's heavy, wet snow or settled/compacted some it'll high center the vehicle. Happens to lifted Subaru's with locking center and clutch type rear differentials in way less than 30".

2 second search shows people high centering and more snow driving feedback:

So, I high-centered my Forester in the snow today, got a question - Subaru Forester Owners Forum
