    So I am going to get a snorkel, but I have been worried about issues with snow, where I live we get a ton of snow. I read about turning the head backwards and sideways, or using a pre filter but none of them seem to be a good fit. Then i found a snow specific head. I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with it or has ever saw one before. I cannot for the life of me find any information on this part.

    Or you can also google the sku SNPSNOWHEAD and it is the only page that comes up.

    I have never had any issue driving in rain or snow.... seem like a none issue to me.

    I've always turned the standard head around in the snow. I've seen it ice up when forward in the snow.

    I've also never had a problem. But, like @Prime said, just turn it around if you're worried

    This is what I have. I swapped heads due to snow accumulating in the stock head. I was getting a little water in the air box. I bought this one off ebay.

    I’m in same boat as @IM1RU with no issue while driving. Though if concerned, you can turn around. In very very heavy snowfall and gusts while parked, I have covered the head to be safe.
