You want to pummel snow into submission? These are the best vehicles for the job.
This is the sort of vehicle you'd likely see at your local ski slope, or at your run of the mill Antarctic expedition. Where conventional tires may fail, tracks won't.

Commissioned by the occupying German Army, the Tatra Aeroluge was a modifed T87 with skis instead of wheels and a propellor at the back. The conventionally wheeled T87 is the best car we've ever reviewed, so it'd stand to reason that the Aeroluge would be a conquering snow vehicle. Too bad Tatra only made one.
Hey, if a team of sled dogs can traverse Alaska they should have no problems in Buffalo, right? Furthermore, squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! There isn't a more adorable way to conquer snow.

Any 4x4 vehicle with tracks will do well on the snow, especially if it's an F-150 Raptor driven by the king hoon himself, Kenton L. Blockowicz. Who said snow has to be miserable?

One of these busses is used as an airport shuttle in Antarctica, so you know it has to handle some serious snow. It laughs at snow with tires that are 7 feet in diameter and 6 feet across.
"It's not like it has a truck front, manual transmission, AWD, convertible rear section and is amphibious/floats on water-oh, it does all of that? Sounds like a good buy."
If you have an Arktos Evacuation Craft, you're not going to get stuck anywhere. It's as simple as that.
Three words: rocket assisted takeoff. If you need to get the hell away from the snow quickly, this is the vehicle for you.
You don't see screw-propelled vehicles nearly often enough which is a damn shame because I can't think of a more ridiculous thing to get through snow, or any bad conditions for that matter.
It's a tank with a motherfucking flame thrower. What could be better?
