Better tires for the snow, tire chain or buy a 4x4 or all wheel car.

What do you want us to say. There isn't much to do to a car in the snow. Assuming the car's steering, suspension and brakes are in good working order. It's all traction (tires and or chains) or driver skill. Fish tailing a fwd car in snow means your are going too fast around a corner or hitting the brakes too much letting them lock up. Rolling tires give traction, if they lock up they slide whatever direction they want to.

How about additional weight in the trunk ?
