Using sand with magic salt

    We have been using and selling Magic for 3 years, and its great , but we have run into a problem on several properties.

    The properties in question all have some sort of moderate to steep hills, we pre-treat the property with Liquid -0, and then we start plowing after 1 inch or so. Now the problem we run into is on the steep hills the cars are still needing the sand for traction DURING the snowstorm. After we do the final cleanup at the end of the storm the Magic does it's job and gets us down to pavement. Has anyone else ran into this problem of needing sand during a storm. On these properties I still cant seem to make a complete switch to 100% Magic.
