All the electronics on my slash are waterproof, and its snowing pretty good here in PA, but are batteries waterproof? I would really hate to lose a battery trying to entertain myself out in the snow.
They say not to get the LiPos wet but it's snowing here in Jersey as well and just took my soft pack lipos out and had some fun with my rustler and summit. Everything seemed fine to me no puffiness or anything. If you want just throw them in a sandwich bag and tape it up. Make sure the balancing cable is covered in the bag and get electrical tape and tape the trx connectors so no water gets in between the male and female plugs.
Water an lipos don't mix . Like TheNitroGuy said make sure they're are sealed up real tight. I would use Nimh batteries for snow if you hv them .

I run my stampede in the snow, water and mud with 2s & 3s batteries. Never had a problem yet
If you're gonna be stupid, you'd better be tough.
we have total of 8 lipos soft pack (2s & 3s) from (team great hobbies) and we keep bashing in snow last 3 weeks, and never had problems so far... i had hard case venom 2s on my slash 4x4 and went in salt water & beach and that batt lasted 2 years!
