Yes in snow it is the traction control activating the brakes to stop wheel spin, when descending a hill with hill descent on the noise is again the brakes being activated to control your decent.
All normal and operating as it should, this is all explained in your owners manual, it is a good idea to have a read of the owners manual to under stand how your GC operates and how to operate your GC correctly

Re: 4x4 Low Range / Snow Noise

As yoda said all normal. I understand why you asked the question. I knew what the sound was but was still a little concerned as its nothing like I've ever heard before. Wish I could get to try mine out on snow...
