Winter Wheeling Spots

So since getting my new JK I have really wanted to get out and wheel. I made it out last weekend and had a great time but now I am looking at another weekend with my wife busy studying for finals and me being bored. I'm wondering what places are open that I could go explore but don't have any experience with wheeling during the cold months.

I know that AF closes down but what are the other places that are still accessible? We were at 5 mile last week. What about the B? Is Guardsman Pass open? I'm interested in the Stansbury Mountains (last time I was out there was in scouts 15 years ago) or maybe Rush Valley near Big Hollow. Where do you guys go when you get the itch to winter wheel in northern Utah?

Man, this makes me realize I need to get a CB and a winch so when I go exploring I can get myself out of it as well.

Give me the tips on your hidden winter gems.

Old Ward Canyon is open if you can get through the snow. Other than that, anywhere in the west desert should be open.
