Default Winter dg gone wrong

Anyone have any tips how to find lost discs in the snow.
(I put ribbons on most my discs but a couple still got away)

I live in Minnesota and live near a course that doesn’t get much play in the winter. I was playing a little too close to dark and no surprise I lost a few under the snow and couldn’t find them. It snowed that night and now they’re hiding.

Ummm... Throw tomahawks so the disc lands on the face and slides on top of the snow?

I like the move south solution... How deep was the snow?

Buy 100 new discs from here http://www.prodiscus.fi and pick up lost discs next spring then snow has melted. Move move is great too.

Fellow MN resident here. When they dive under the snow, the only thing you can do is look for the mark in the snow where the disc went under. Playing in powder is tough, you'll get used to it though.

Once the snow has a little time to stiffen up you'll experience more skips and it won't be as hard to find your plastic. Try a course with a little more winter traffic, it helps not only with finding your drives but a lot of places have their pads shoveled pretty routinely in the winter.

I think the only real suggestions from my experience are to learn to discipline yourself that when the light is waning to overcome the desire to keep playing by remembering the frustration of looking for discs in the dark and possibility of losing discs. When you throw a disc stay focused visually on exactly where is vanished into the snow and immediately walk toward it without looking away from that exact spot and dig. I have a tendency to think "ill remember where that disc went out of sight" then throw another and then not remember exactly where it vanished from sight =) Good Luck! (Also darker discs might work better in the snow)

Two words... super. class.

Last time I played in deep snow with a Zephyr, it never went in, just kinda landed on top. It’s an option at least....
