I've lived in WA for almost all my life. Spent 10 years living in CO and a few years on various parts of the planet courtesy of the Army.
One thing certain, Snow is different in various parts of the world. What might work in CO, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, or Europe may not work at all in WA.
Our mountain snow is often referred to as "Cascade Cement". "Snow Socks" may work well in some snow but here you need something that can DIG through the wet, heavy, icy, stuff we get in our mountain passes.
That said, when the snow gets real bad and the plows can't keep it pushed off so that people with All Season tires can keep moving, they just close the passes.
As for making the panels removable, using Dzus fasteners, that's kind of throwback to 1950's vintage cars that had removable fender skirts. Should work fine.
