I've never used ribbons, so cannot advise.

I go by watching my disc and finding the marks in the snow where it hit and then tracking it from there.

Edit: I typically schlep a shovel if it's super snowy or to clear pads.

Does pool chalk work the way I think it would? Put some on most of the rim before the throw and it should leave a streak where it lands.

Sounds like you picked the wrong place to live, BM. Sucks to be you.

There are a lot of chalk guys out there for sure. Works well until it gets too popular and there are just colored spots all over the normal landing areas.

I try to stick to smaller courses that I know well. Familiar landing zones make looking for discs a whole lot easier.

The one thing I find useful is the Ice Chains, the same brand That makes Yak Tracks makes these chains with mini chain links, My area has thawing and freezing so ice is a big issue in my area. The chains are the best for ice yet can be used on pavement or on snow, better then actual ice spikes and last longer then the standard styles of Yak Tracks.

Took this pic on my course today. 9 inches.
Last year we had 280" and over 300" the year before. At some point you stop playing because you will lose discs.
I hereby invite the ribbon and chalk people to come play a round in my area in January or February.
(in February, you won't even know this picnic table is here)
