Winter mode

I will be working up at a local ski resort this winter and I want to make sure my focus is ready for some winter travel. They normally do a good job keeping the road plowed but sometimes the parking lots can be sketchy. Right now I'm lowered 1.5" with 17" wheels with continental extreme contact dws fairly new tires. What can I do to make my car more safe? Or will these tires be ok? Idk If I have enough clearance for chains and I am on a low budget to go buy steelies with snow tires $500+.
