Yes, the absolute best performance would be to have 2 sets of tires- one for snowy conditions- winter, one for other seasons- summer.

Living in NJ I've found all seasons to do a very nice job for all my cars for years. We live on a mountain, we drive 60 miles to go skiing and get a great deal of snow some seasons.
In summertime with high temperatures "all season" tires are dangerous due to the fact that the rubber gets dangerously soft in comparison to real summertires and extends breaking distance significally.
Itīs a life/death margin i many situasjons.
