Unless you're full retard - you'll get the hang of it within a week of driving everyday. You shouldn't be stalling the car after a few weeks - if you are, stop and get someone to figure out what you're doing wrong.

A few random times is fine - I stall sometimes on steep hills when I'm not paying attention or feathering the clutch with a toe out of laziness.

I'll show you for a 6-pack.

Also, there wasn't really that much snow last night, it was just very slushy, which makes it harder/easier to drive straight/sideways.

When you have no snow tires at the moment, throw some weights in the trunk(~20kg ish) that'll help.

AS stated in your post and by others. Having only 10% tread left on your tires is the biggest issue here.

Poster needs an auto for sure. Rather have rear wheel drive stick any day with snows. Turn off TC and have some fun. Those lucky Europeans don't even know what an auto is.
