I took my girls out for a an afternoon trip up near Snoqualmie Pass. We headed up FS4828 along the west side of Kachess Lake. There was a little snow at first but nothing to worry about. Then about a mile in, the snow got deep very quickly. I have a Grand Cherokee. Not much clearance stock like mine. I high centered a couple hundred yards into the snow. There were some UTV's on the trail that offered to send a friend back with a Jeep. Then I started self recovery with my high lift jack in winching setup. I had made the jack go up and down before but not setup the chains for winching. Luckily there was a good tree in line that was barely in reach with my chain (30'). I also used my snatch strap to get to the tree. I started winching and filled the snatch strap with tension. I had my the Jeep in reverse, traction control off and gave it a push. Then reset the winch and pulled again. After 3 or 4 times, I was out of the holes and able to back out. Lessons learned - 1 Don't go out alone (I break this often) 2 be prepared. This is the first time I have used the high lift jack. 3 Be thankful for other trail users and their support. Even though they provided moral support (because I blocked the trail), that kept me calm through the event.
