One of my players is arguing that a wolf cannot drag a 175 lb human including gear more than 5 ft when on tundra.
How far can they drag them?

A normal wolf is a quadruped medium creature with a strength score of 13.
As per the carrying capacity rules, this means that it can drag up to 1,125 lb. under normal conditions.
Further, according to the Frostburn p.27 handbook, tundra terrain can be difficult terrain (depending on the characteristics of the zone), but it doesn't mention carrying capacity. However, the carrying capacity rules about dragging do mention bad circumstances can reduce carrying capacity to one-half or less, without giving any more indications. The weight limit under such circumstances would be up to the DM.
Dragging something doesn't seem to incur any special penalty, there's just a limit to how much weight you can drag. Therefore, the wolf wouldn't have any penalty because of dragging this body.
