The trick is purpose winter tires. I use the Firestone Winterforce tires in size 225/60-18 on all four corners. They are not that expensive and grip snow & ice really well. For unplowed snow deeper than 5 inches, I'll add a Tupperware-type container with two 50 pound bags of sand in the trunk. I can go anywhere (on the roads) in the snow. My tires are mounted to extra OEM R/T rims that I got second hand.
Just take the snow tires off before the temperatures average more than 60 degrees for more than a day or two. The soft rubber feels squishy if it gets too warm out (plus they will wear quickly).
