Deep snow means it's time for Zephyr-only rounds.

I disagree. 2" or more of snow, you definately need ribbons unless you don't mind losing a few discs.

Spray the area where your disc is going to land with water. By the time you get back to the tee, it will be frozen and your disc will stay on top.

Eh I'd say more like 3" or more of snow is when things get tricky. 1 or 2 inch isn't much and discs, especially mids and putters don't usually bury in that.

Echo what people say about only throwing 1 disc at a time and really really paying attention to where it goes.

Also avoid higher speed very stable discs as they like to spike and bury themselves. As much as I love my gstar firebird when it's cold out, once there is anything more than a couple inches of snow that bird likes to nosedive and bury himself. Can't have that happening especially since it's a couple seasons worn in and just perfect.

.........and PLEASE bring a shovel for the tees.

Or just tee off from the side until someone gets there to shovel

Yup! Every winter disc golf thread needs the following warning:

DO NOT THROW FROM TEE PAD THAT HAVE NOT BEEN SHOVELED. Using them creates an icy mess that is infinitely more difficult to clear and causes the snow/ice to stay on the pad much longer.

TEE FROM THE SIDE OR BACK OF THE PAD, WHEN TEE ARE NOT CLEARED. If you don't/can't be part of the solution, certainly don't be part of the problem.

Thank you for allowing me this time for the public service announcement.

Next time you visit your parent's house go digging through your old boxes for all of your old McHammer and Vanilla Ice cassette tapes. They make for good snow golf ribbons!
