It's a great idea and a terrible idea. I can see where it would be more likely to ride over the gravel, great idea but I can also see it riding up on any packed snow, bad idea.

I have 300' of gravel and all I do is set the skids at 3/4 inch and the first and maybe second snow I don't blow I just drive on to pack a little of it down. It's worked great for me for years.
Hopefully this summer I'll be adding some gravel and doing some leveling as the blower did manage to hit that little hump in the middle here and there this year. That's my fault for not grooming it sooner.


Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!
