I am ready to do some snow wheelin' close to my new home.

I know last year things were not normal.
When is it normal to see deep snow drifts at the LT from Sheep Company Road?
How far do people normally make it up in the middle of December and mid January?

I can not see the LT from my place. There is a ridge in the way. A short drive I would be able to see it.

That would be a good place to test whether a big boat anchor would do the same job as a Pull Pal. Boat anchors are made as tough or tougher than Pull Pals and they hold much more weight, especially in storms. It's worth a try.
