If you slide, take your foot off the gas peddle, turn your wheel INTO the slide and the vehicle will usually correct the skid. Don't usually need special tires unless you get a lot of snow.
I'm in Colorado Springs and we got a pretty good amount of snow. People were getting stuck on hills most of the natives know to avoid when you're sliding on flat streets. I had to dig my SUV out in front of the neighbors house and struggle to get it up where it needed to be. I had to dig it out this morning to drive my friend to work too. I love driving in the snow but sometimes... there's a limit. lol. My area only got about 7-8 inches of snow, which is the most we've gotten in years and its still sticking. A few miles further down they have a foot and a half of snow. We're supposed to get another 4-6 inches of snow friday night and some more on sunday.
