I've driven in blizzard-like conditions in my Prius. The Prius handles
remarkably well in the winter if you drive with safety in mind.

I find that with the traction control, I can cruise on snowy highways
in the left lane quite comfortably, and switch lanes over icy bumps
with out feeling insecure.  Next year I will put on snows and I am
sure it will be even better.

Driving in the snow is our one complaint on the Prius.  My conclusion is
that the tires suck in the snow.  I look forward to wearing them out and
getting better tires, and I am sure that I will agonize over the decision on
what tire to buy.

If you are buying "all season" with the intent of keeping the same tire
on the car year-round, there is no choice:  Nokian WR.

Otherwise, get dedicated winter tires on all four corners and take the
time to switch them on and off each winter.  You'll be very pleased and
surprised at the performance.

 This is perfect advice for anyone driving virtually any
car in a 4-season environment.
