On very cold ice, studs will not penetrate the surface resulting in a "skating" effect and loss of control.
2 snows are fine if all you're concerned with is rear wheel traction but no steering. "Yahoos" that want maximum control in the snow will opt for 4 snows. I have 4 Nokias on one car and 4 Blizzaks on the other - yahoo!!
And I agree with some of the others and their comments on the damage caused by studded tires...
