My Executioners are excellent on hard snow but if you get off the trail in the deep powder then they dig straight down.If there is powder snow with a good bottom then they will bite and pull you through.I think there is probably something better out there than Executioners,look for something that will float.Maybe if I had 12" wides they might work better.

Here is a pic of the tires that were on my bike when I got it. 24x9x11 front & 24x10x11 rear. They were well worn and just about useless in the bog but I could usually run circles around the bikes in our group in the snow. They stayed on top when the more agressive tires dug in. As long as I was out front and didn't try to follow in the ruts dug by the other bikes I rarely got stuck. If the snow is deep your best bet is to get the widest tire with the least agressive chevron pattern tread to stay on top.

Had those on the rear. Gheng Shin's I think. Forget the actual brand on the front. They were great on the trails but only 2 ply and as a result were full of plugs, including 5 in one hole in a sidewall from a railway spike from the old rail bed.
They were better in the snow than my new Super Lights but who wants to ride around on worn out little 24's when you can tear stuff up and get even more stuck with some real tires!

I would say that any radial is going to be better in the snow than any bias tire, just cause the tread will flatten out and grab instead of deforming. I know my bike has at least doubled the grip it had on snow (and I mean hard snow/ice. Obviously with the more aggressive tread deep snow traction is 10 times better)

My Carlisle ACT's are fantastic in the winter. That is the one thing I know about them so far

ACT = All Conditions Tire, does that beat Mud Snow Trail? Just kidding!
