My biggest concern re winter driving is the front lip hitting frozen snow left by snow ploughs - fingers crossed for a mild winter!
My front lip hits all road debris even in the summer so winter isn't fun. Luckily this past winter wasn't too bad so my lip survived.

Whenever there's more then 2-3 inches on the ground your front lip will act like a snowplow though, just re-paint it in summer
