im no expert but thats not 7 inches of snow. your sidewalls are maybe 2-3 inches and thats about where the snow stops. Give an addition 1/2" of compressed snow under the tire and your looking at 2.5 - 4 inches of snow. Try again.

I'm jelly. We used to get snow like that a couple times a year here, but haven't had any real amazing blizzards in years...

No more than 2 inches of snow was predicted for yesterday, but it snowed pretty good the entire day. Then they said it would stop around 6 am. It's now 4pm, it hasn't stopped yet, and there's no signs of it slowing. The 2 inch prediction has already hit about 8 inches and who knows how much more is to come. Now don't forget the 16 inches we got over 2 days before Christmas. My back yard is deep, lol.

You'll be good to go! Nordic mountain or ski bruel are good spots from what i hear.

Even if there's no snow the places all have snow machines so you're always good to go.

What part of Wisconsin are you going to hit?

I don't know where that is, but the northeastern area is great for snow right now.
