As for the stock Continentals, yes, they're not the best (like the DWS model) but it's good enough I think. Just don't drive fast in the snow.
Currently I have the entry-level Goodyear Ultragrips that Ford gave away with the purchase of a new vehicle and they're really decent as well.
We drove with the Conis on our recent trip to Green Bay and back. The only trouble we had was in pure snow on a slope. The solution was to turn off the damn traction control and approach the slope slowly. Problem solved.
OP should quite bitching and buy snow tires.
