Unfortunately that isn't the case. The whole seat has to come down or nada.

If there's not much chance of snow, I drive a 2006 Mazda 6 with snow tires.

If it's snowing, or supposed to snow, I drive my 2008 Suzuki XL7 AWD...Thing's a beast in the snow. Never gotten stuck once even when most of Denverites had trouble heading up the hill with the huge storms we got the beginning of April.

Yup i am sure it happens nearly every weekend actually...i actually found myself leaving like 30 minutes early so i would get to the mountain like 45 mins before first chair just so i could go up the road with no cars nearby and have to deal with the giant clusterfuck that ensues every time...
Half the problem are some really stupid employee's, my cars skidding with my rear end spinning sideways on the access road because they stopped us all and they shrug their shoulders at me before eventually pushing me...idiots..

I drive either a Volvo S40 FWD w/chains or a 2001 Toyota Tundra w/ 4wd. Never crashed

Haha my friend on the other hand took his like 1994 Toyota 4runner with w/ 4wd around a turn at 40 mph in chain control when the recommended speed for that turn was 30mph. You can assume what happened

92 Landcruiser FJ80. Best snow vehicle on the road. I've never lost traction in it. Not once.
99 Subaru Wagon. Needs new tires, but is great.
98 Tacoma. Just bought it so I haven't tested it in the snow yet.

They all run like champs.

+1 on the Landcruiser-have a 96 Landcruiser-Unstoppable. Front/rear lockers, old man emu bumper for bulletproof protection. Get a 95-97 Landcruiser or Lexus Lx450-same ride, just a little more plush and few more chichis

Well I finally found a Titan 4x4 KC. I freaking love this thing, could not be happier with it. Now I just can't wait to get it in snow. Saying I've never lived in a snowy place, is there any special maintenance or care for the truck? I will change oil and probably get some beefier tires for it too.

Either an 08 Mazda 3 or a 99 Chevy Monte Carlo. Took the Monte Carlo last year and it did great. Probably take it again this year to keep wear/tear off the Mazda.
