Too many unknown variables to answer that question accurately.
What kind of snow? Fresh powder? 3 month old snowpack with 4" of frozen crust?
What about your Jeep? Lift? Tire size, type? Lockers/ limited slip/ open diffs?

depends on your momentum.... the snow itself... heavy or light......

I was going a little too slow to push through this.... 4" SL on 33's.....

floated up on the skid.... bummer.. just a little faster and I would have made it

I knew a guy that tried to climb a snow bank made by plows and ripped his brake lines off since it was so solid. Not sure if this is a good example or not.

I was ripping around in 30" of snow all weekend in downtown Boston. I had no issues (32" m/t tires and a 2" BB).

33", little less than 3 feet I suppose. My shovel took off the top layer as I went, but it was definately 33", I measured before I started.

Also, that was the first run, no tracks beforehand.

Or are you talking about how my tires are only half deep? That's because you end up on top of the snow.
