Snowed In Parking

While the most trafficked places in cities are usually kept free of snow, the rural areas are buried in it in the times like this.

 

It’s difficult to move in such deep snow. 

Often when you manage to get one foot out of it, your boot remains firmly stuck in it, you have to dig it out, remove the snow from it and put your foot back in it…  and the next step you take, it’s the same story all over again.

Walking in really deep snow in wilderness is even more difficult. It feels like you are in a wrestling match with nature – it’s exhausting. 
And sometimes you just can’t do it. You must turn back and try to find another way.

What was the deepest snow you have ever walked in?

    I didn’t get out and walk around, but I did pass through Revelstoke, British Columbia on the train one winter when they got 1,000 inches (!!!) of snow. It’s on the western edge of the Rockies and all the moisture from the Pacific winds suddenly cools as it rises to go over the mountains. Result: a deluge of snow!

      I think you mean the total snow fall that winter but it’s still a lot. I believe the deepest snow ever measured was in 400s and nobody could ever walk in it. You would just fall down into the snow abyss never to come up again.

  2. Wow – that’s a lot of snow!

    It looks so lovely – but I can understand how exhausting it must be to have to dig your car out of it – or to walk in deep snow.
    As a kid we’d sometimes get fairly good snowfalls, but nothing like you have. The deepest I’ve walked in is when you step off the path without realising it and suddenly the snow was over your boot.
