What pressure should you have in your snow bike tires? If you're riding on pavement, pump them up near the max around 15-18psi. For mountain biking on dirt, about 8psi is a common sweet spot. For packed snow, go with 7psi. For fresh deep snow, you can go as low as 5-6psi for the best floatation and traction.
Rider weight and varying snow or dirt conditions will require some adjustments to the above pressures. If you're less than 140 pounds, you can drop a pound or so in your tire pressure. If you're over 200 pounds, add a pound or so to your tire pressures. In the end, your experimentation and experience in different conditions will be best in finding what works best for you.
