I would say that if you were running open water that you may have sucked in water spray which could freeze the carb. Or you may want to drain your tank or at least check the bottom for water.
You could drain your bowls in a clear gar and if there is water you will see it on the bottom

I pulled the air box and looked it over but I didnt notice any foam where should this be located? Looking at the parts breakdown dosent show any foam either should I add some? I looked over the carb boots going from the air box to the carbs and didnt notice any leaks or cracks I did notice some snow inside the air box though.

You can add half a bottle to every tank, since the botttles are normally good for 20 gallons. Remember to use the RED iso bottles not the yellow.
