Snow driving weather

I just got my 2013 Ford Focus Titanium last month and have been loving it. Recently it's started snowing here in PA and I want to get some clarification about driving in the snow.

In my old 2004 Toyota Echo I had Drive, Second Gear, and Lower Gear. So when it snowing I would usually switch to lower to have the engine help me brake. But with my new car there is drive and sport. Would I need to put the car in Sport mode and just keep in lower gear myself, or would Sport mode give me more grip in snow?

Training my driving behaviors with the new car is a little challenging but lots of fun.
