Default Deepest snow driven in?

Just curious, what is the deepest snow that some of you have gotten away with driving in without getting stuck. I came home (Cincinnati area) from out of town last Tuesday only to find my 400' driveway covered with drifting snow-up to 18" in spots. I could not make it all the way in, even in low, had to walk the remaining 350'.

Last weekend I was joyriding my ZR2 on some ORV trails in northern MI with about 2 ft of snow, I was fine but started to spin on some steep hills. I was in 4LO the whole way, for about 10 mi

About 2 feet of fresh DRY powder. You get in the wet stuff and its not nearly as fun or easy.

^^^ good vid!

the deepest i've gotten through was about 24"+ in my '92 Jimmy. haven't really had any serious snow in the last two Winters, so i'm not too sure how my '98 will fair. seems to handle what i've thrown @ it fairly well so far.

my biggest issue is gonna be when the crapy plastic bumper gives way to the snow i'm driving through.

just remember, the tires that you ride on will make a world of difference in how far you get.
