It depends on your living and driving situation. If, for example, you live on a hill and don't have another car to drive, you should get snow tires. If you don't have to drive or don't live on top of one of our many hills, all-seasons are fine. Keep in mind that with the type of snow we get here (wet and heavy snow falling in near-freezing conditions, so it turns to ice fast), a car with all-seasons and RWD will almost certainly not be able to get up any but the smallest/shortest of inclines if there is snow on the ground.

I live on Capitol Hill, go skiing, and don't have another car available, so I have snow tires.
