You can, but it alters the approach angle of the track, making it easier to get stuck in deep snow, and changes the angle of your front spindles and changes ski pressure, affecting steering. It will not change suspension travel at all, just ride height.

You don't want to jack it up at all like said that will negatively effect the way your suspension works.

If its sitting too low you may want to check your torsion springs/shocks. My ZR skid with fresh/ shocks springs sits waay up high.

I wouldn't want it any higher or its going to create more rolling resistance (attack angle) as well it will act like a pogo stick and you will have too much ski pressure.
