When things get really gnarly I haul out the serious deep snow weapon, the Isuzu trooper with traction tires. It will go through anything. A real off road 4x4 with plenty of weight and road clearance to punch through the deep stuff, but nice enough inside that the wife doesn't complain. And it has enough room inside to haul anything.
