I know there are a lot of mixed answers here, but I fear there may be a lot of dilution here.

I come from a city with snowfall that exceeds my height by at least double sometimes with terrible roads and snow removal crews, and I've driven in these terrible winters for years and years. I would just like to make it clear once again that WINTER TIRES ARE 100% NECESSARY AND ALL-SEASONS ARE NEXT TO USELESS.

Hope this helps, keep everyone safe and cheers.
Exactly this. For me snow tires are not even remotely an option. They are completely necessary. I don't buy the good driver/bad driver argument. If you need to slam on the brakes or perform an evasive maneuver on all season tires in icy or snowy conditions, it does not matter how good of a driver you are. Even F1 drivers will slam into a sidewall if they have no traction.
