On smaller airplanes I just bolt skis on solid with neutral incidence. this works good in firm snow. When snow is light and fluffy skis wont stay on top so I just unbolt the skis and bolt on simple Glass covered foam floats. If your airplane will not sit level as this Twist 40 than the tail down attitude will help in getting the airplane up on top of the snow. Carry a wax candle in your winter tool box.
