Everything handles well in snow with the right tires. With all my vehicles, I by a cheap set of steel wheels and put expensive snow tires on them for the winter. My VW wagon gets Bridgestone Blizzaks..and truth be told, it drove out of the driveway one day when the Jeep with 'All Seasons' parked beside it was hopelessly stuck in the same depth of snow. Just keeping a set of tires on rims permanently and swapping rims is cheaper and easier on tire and rims than switching tires on one set of rims. The Prius tires are like all cars sold other than in Quebec, and are 'All Seasons' useless when it snows and gets really cold. Like all modern cars, it has too much plastic too low to the ground--that stuff is great for mileage on paved roads when its warm and dry. But drive carefully and don't slide into snowbanks and you should be as fine as any other car. LOL!
