If it's crusted, chains hurt you! Barefoot baby!

I agree chains wouldn't help. It's already crusted from the previous storm. So you should have two layers of crust to contend with in 2 weeks. Good luck with that.

I'll bet you 20 bucks you cant make it to the side playground with the jump.

This is getting good. When is the bet-breaker run happening? I'll be happy to come along and act as witness.

I thought I would be good with my LTB's at 5 psi and no chains. Conditions were weird, however. I was losing traction and spinning on the layer below the powder without digging in much. I sure had fun making lots of attempts up the hills though.
