I have found that soft/sipped tires are the best in winter on compact snow and ice, not necessarily big tires or aggressive tread. I laugh when the jacked up trucks with gnarly tires get stuck and I cruise through in a Subaru. The high profile trucks and SUV with stiff suspensions end up sliding off the road as well.
I do my best to have a set of tires mounted on wheels for the winter and a separate set for the warmer months. I live between three passes that can get nasty quickly in the winter months. It is less expensive and less painful to have a separate winter set, than it is to damage or be damaged because someone loses control on our wintered passes.
