With the LSD, traction control, ABS, a 50/50 weight distribution and a good set of winter tires, the car is EXCELLENT in the snow. Not just good- excellent.
One thing to keep in mind, however, is tire width. My stock staggered sizes are 245 rear and 225 front. I went with 225s on all four corners last year (Blizzak Revo1s). The Revos were excellent, but if I had to do it over again, I'd probably go for 215/45/17s to provide better traction in deep snow and more hyroplaning resistance on wet slush.
I've never been stuck in any conditions, the car is balanced and predicatable, stable at speed, and easy to control. Most fun-to-drive car in the snow I've ever owned.
