Maybe Pittsburgh has not enough snow removing tractors?

Around Apr 1 this year we had ~30cm of snow in Moscow _for the single afternoon_. The city was not paralyzed at all (though the federal route of Moscow <-> SPb was stalled for half of the day after this, you needed like 5 hours to go out of the city for 80km using this route).

Probably this is a sign of more serious approach to road snow removal equipment in Minnesota.

Amazing. Sometimes you can avoid this using inertia - just go-go-go without any attempts to stop, using wheels as the steamship's paddle wheels. Sometimes you really manage to do this. Just do not stop.

Yes, good idea for such adventures.

He is using tubed tires? yes, this can be dismounted manually. Even by a single person if he/she is experienced.
