    I build a ramp with the snow, pushing the snow as far as I can....usually wind up with the snow around 8 to 10 feet, depending on if the snow can freeze enough for me to run on it with the atv.....I had pics but lost them when my computer went south...sorry. I'll try to find some on here, I thought I posted some.

    I make them as high as I can go. I use to remove the banks at my house when I had mmy kubota. but I no longer have that and now I have a much bigger tractor so I wont be moving banks anymore lol.

    It all depends on where I am stacking the snow. Since most of my drives are in town and I have to stack at the end of the driveway I only stack about 3ft high so you can see to back out of the drive.

    I was at 5 feet a few weeks ago. But this thaw/melt/freeze is making it hard to keep the ramp.

    It's like hitting a brick on the next day if the sun was out.



    I bet if the snow was right you could go to 10'

    Piled it at the end of the driveway, only the first real plowable event of the season. Once we get more then I'll have to figure something out.

    Piling On

    Last year I got my primary pile to right about 12'. It was the first year I really tried to see how high I could build it. Had a beer bet with a couple buddies. I ended up with 2-30 packs of free beer :)

    This year I was on track to possibly beat my 2008 pile. We got over 6' of snow from the middle of December to the middle of January. Then it warmed up. Here's where I stood before the melt off started.

    Because we are so exposed to the wind I pile as much as I can to the windward side of the driveway. Works pretty good at keeping the drifting down.

    As a comparison, last year I could step off the snowpile in front of the shop right onto the roof. The eaves are at 12'.

    We go as high as the dozer will push and the amount of snow we get.

    youd think i was an equipmwnt operator lol im higher than the town plow, i had one next to the road and my neighbor didnt like it, he knocked it down with his tractor, lookin down at cars is always fun lol.

    you have to be careful with irs because when you get to the top if you go to far the front wheel drops which makes the backend want to flip over, ive been close to goin ass over tea kettle lol
