    Leave it in drive and raise the plow to push snow up the pile, this way the pile doesn't get wide and you run out of room to put snow. Also Make sure you slow down when coming to the pile.

    If your banging right into the snow pile I'd be more worried about hitting my face on the windshield.

    Pedal off the gas, while raising the plow up at the same time, creating a slow & smooth stop. ( don't use break pedal ) then wait the 3 seconds before flooring it into reverse! ( allow the tranny to engage )
