It's been running fine all winter, short of some fouled plugs.

It sat for 2 weeks for lack of snow.

We got a storm that dropped over a foot and went to start it, fired weakly for about 30 secs and drove 20 feet and died.

Got it to fire briefly a couple of times for no more than 10 secs and now it won't fire at all.

I'm new to this so I'm open to all opinions/suggestions.

Thank you.

have you poured some(small amount) of fuel into the cyl's thru the spark plug hole.. replace plugs and pull... if it fired and runs briefly you have good spark but no fuel.. is the machine parked inside or outside.. if outside, make some ice in the fuel lines or carbs.... its a place to start...

I would get it inside and warm it up/thaw it out. My ZL was real bad about icing up last year (old gas, same engine as your Prowler). I even drained all the gas from the tank, and found a block of ice around the fuel pick-up tube in the tank. Open the hood, give it a bunch of pulls, and see if you can see fuel going to the fuel pump from the tank, and also from the pump to each of the carbs. That is where I would start.
