With Blizzaks, you're as good as it gets without AWD. Just keep moving and try not to come to a full stop. Basic snow driving - never stop unless forced to, don't do anything hard (braking or acceleration) and don't try to do anything fast. Smooth and gradual gets you almost anywhere.

Drove a '66 GTO through a lot of snow, and many other RWD cars, most of them with no traction control. A smooth driver who looks far, far ahead and plans his moves well in advance can go darn near anywhere.
