it is waterproof but i would not recommend it. It does have bearings and moving parts that can get gummed up and rust.

i would get new screws and after every run take apart the a arms and moving parts on your car and spray some wd40 it preserves the parts and keeps rust away

Too answer your question , sure you can run it in the snow , it will be fine .

BUT you must do maintenance on it afterward if you do not you will have problems .

Youve got to blow out the water and dirt after youre done and then spray all screws , bearings and pivot points with WD40 or some other oil to help prevent rust . I have ran mine after a rain storm and it had no ill effects on the truck . I wouldnt submerge it though .
