I've seen a few 2WD cars go past, apparently successfully (and a Honda Civic stuck) but neither Ben nor I could get our cars to go anywhere. We spent over an hour digging and trying. Most frustrating is that the Pug is at the top of the village, with only a gentle slope to drive up. However the snow on the road is still soft (but not quite powder) and deep enough to completely prevent the tyres cutting through. Modern tyres may grip tarmac well, but they are much worse on snow than I can ever remember in the past.
