As with anything in slippery driving, it is all a matter of touch, learning the limit, and practice.

The reason many people are not good drivers in snowy slippery conditions is that they don't get that practice. The majority of US drivers don't see those conditions very often. The further north (or more avid the skier) the more likely you will find good snow-drivers, no matter the vehicle.

For some people who don't know how to drive in the snow, any vehicle is dangerous - There is an old adage:

Four-wheel-drive will get you stuck in places you could NEVER make it in a two-wheel-drive.
