Tips for Trail riding on snow and ice?
Hey guys, I just tried to go up to Nikolai Mountain yesterday here near the Oregon coast. I've made it up and played in snow up there before, but this time while going up the fire road we had some guys in their large Diesel trucks coming down with atv trailers. About nine of them in all and they pushed us off the side of the road because they didn't feel like going 6" off the path even though they had room to go about 7' off. We ended up sliding into the ditch and took about 2.5 hours to get all three of us out. I was just curious what you guys find to be the best upgrades from stock for doing stuff like this. My main problem I believe was the stock Wrangler GSA's. I know I want to get a winch sometime real soon, but what is the best kind of tire for this stuff? I plan to do a lot of trail riding (trying to stay out of mud as much as possible) and snow stuff in the winter. What's your setup, and what do you recommend?
