Focus in snow

So today was the first time I've driven my focus in the snow. I was impressed by how it reacted in the snow( no traction control). It never lost traction or slid. Does anyone else feel this way about there focus in the snow

Mine's pretty good too, even without snow tires. I only lost traction once because I turned too fast.

I was impressed because I heard so many people complaining about the back end walking around but mine didn't .

I drove it up a monutain to go snowboarding last year with a bad valve and near-bald tires lol. I had to chain up once the snow got to about 5" though, while going up the mountain. 4-5" on the commute to work was no problem.

needess to day, mines a BEAST in the snow :P

that's one of the many reasons I have a 4wd f150. The only time the car gets driven in the snow is if it snows while I am working or starts while I'm out somewhere else,otherwise the truck gets to play. The focus is ok in the snow,but I like the truck better.
