Fair enough, although most of the non super sticky summer tires don't wear that quickly when they aren't tracked Courtneys summers still look like brand new after 1 year and her snow tires are on season 3 now with more than 80% measured tread depth.

meanwhile I've gone through 3 sets of summers and 2 sets of snows in the same time

I think tire rack did a study similar to this in the past.
Depends on the snow tire in question, older blizzaks especially wear unusually fast compared to some of the other newer snow tires.

from the article:
"Most importantly, at the end of a hard session of high-speed lapping, the Wintersports didnít exhibit any measurable or visible wear at all"

klodkrawler05 interesting article, FoST runs same lap times on snow tires that it does on all seasons plus has all the benefits of not sucking in the winter?
so much for the myth that all seasons handle better than snows:
