Idaho Springs, CO to Black Hawk, CO, Snow Mode Failure, Abandoned Mine

My Buddy Mike came to town so we made a run up to Tommy Knocker in Idaho Springs Colorado, after that we explored some of the back ways to Black Hawk.  We ended up taking a road that was not maintained in winter.  On the 2011 Range Rover SC we have street tires.  I switched it over to snow mode but we couldn’t continue to climb through the snow during an especially high peak.  I think perhaps if we put turned off DSC it may have helped, but for now, I am a bit disappointed in DSC, because I felt it limited my power up the hill when I needed it most.
