Glad to hear you guys are getting some snow now. Whistler is having an amazing start to the season with one storm after another breaking our early season snowfall records, but if we are the only ones with snow no one comes skiing. Hopefully the East Coast and European ski hills catch up soon.

Here in Salt Lake City the roads are salted when it snows. Should I be concerned regarding rust with the D90? So far I've avoided driving it when the roads have visible snow & salt, instead waiting until the road surface dries out.

My advice would be to ship it to me for safe keeping until spring. We use sand on the roads down here.

Yes, Jim, you should be concerned--or at least aware. It is when it sits for a while with the salt that the galvanic reactions are increased. Make sure you take it every once and awhile to a self car wash and clean underneath. Also, if you are motivated, waxoyl the inside of the chassis. Overall, though, you don't need to be as concerned about the humid year-round places like the south and back east...

Wow, here we go again. Nearly 3 feet expected for the foothills (20" in Denver) along with 55mph winds. The rover and winch have already gotten a workout this season. I may have to start charging for the chauffer and recovery services this time around.

Finally ditched the plow and pulled the trigger on this new attachment for the C.A.T.

They've upped the storm totals to 4 feet in the foothills so you may need the Unimog snowblower- quite the contraption. Of course it's like bringing an umbrella- it probably won't snow the rest of the season now that I bought this thing.

Snowplow??? It looks more like a Kia shredder.

Nice, bring it on! I've been thinking about this for mine: http://www.kubota.com/h/products/BX1...snowblower.cfm

But, can't really justify it (since when did that stop us all?) as she's been unstoppable with the FEL, 4WD and back blade. But it sure would be nice...

As our driveway is in a bowl, I'm not sure where I'm going to stack this latest round of snow. I've still got mountains of the last stuff!

I wish I could upload photos from here, I've been on a friends ranch in s.e. Colorado for the last three days. Been driving a front end loader from dawn to dark trying to get to cows that haven't eaten in days....
Don't get out of the saddle all day long, making up now for beer drinkin' time!

This place looks like the moon. Nothin but drifts of white as far as you can see.

Too deep for the Rover, it just sits there.
