A note about ABS since most people don't know this....If you can find the threshold RIGHT before the tires start to slide when braking (meaning ABS won't kick in), you will stop faster than if you slam on the brakes. This is a feel thing so if you don't have much experience driving in snow, just slam on the brakes and let the computer do it for you....
Also, if you're good at drifting, RWD can be better because you can still make turns then, whereas FWD causes massive understeer on ice. If you don't know what understeer is, again, it might just be best to just let the car do its job and go FWD and go slow.
