caching in the snow

This will be my first winter as a geocacher and I am wondering, do alot of people still go caching in the smow covered months? We get our fair share of snow in the area and I'm guessing that it would make things pretty interesting.

 

Just looking for some esperiences and comments icon_smile.gif. Thanks

How about tracks? I've always wondered about that with snow. Do you do anything in particular about that? Like do a lot of circles & criscrosses & other track confusers?

 

Living in the NC piedmont we don't have a lot of snow to worry about & we only started this summer.

Yes I was wondering the same thing, this is going to be my first Geo-winter too and, wondered if people cache all year'round?

 

And, do cache hiders typically indicate wether their caches will be findable in winter? Or more importantly, do cache hiders ever REMOVE their caches during winter months??

Circling around & criscrossing is my normal cache-search pattern even in summer! So I guess I'm set for the snow icon_biggrin.gif

We started caching right before Christmas last year, and while it doesn't (usually) snow in Texas, we got to cache in the snow up at mom & dad's in Oklahoma. It wasn't that much snow, but it did cover up the ammo cans really well.

This was on Dec 26, 2002. We also did some other caches in the snow while up there. It was a blast.
