Any amount, just so you keep snow on the hifax and coolers. Look out for rocks too.

My general rule of thumb I try to follow is one foot....although this year I kinda broke that rule but yeah, I say a foot.

As long as everything is white. My general rule of thumb is 4". If I were to wait until we had a foot on the ground I would'nt be able to do much riding in the area where I live.

Kind of a vague question really. Some ride straight on grass with no snow. Just need to concern with cooling and lubrication as erick wrote. If you don't know the area then even 24" of fresh powder can be dangerous. Think about the elusive stump that is 20" high. Sure enough when you go over that in light fluffy stuff, you'll feel it. Skid plates help for that sort of thing. Flat trail riding, known area, no foreign objects, 6" would rock.

I think.... therefore I sled

Damn Guys,
Must be nice they won't let us ride here until we have 30-36" of snow. Ok I ride on the lake with a lot less but nothing else opens up.

Must be nice to have that much snow on the ground at once. That's the total for a year in Northern IL.
