Sorry you are the one wrong here.

I've driven both, and the AWD understeers WAY more in the snow (assuming you are applying power).

Your tire has X amount of traction. If you are using Y amount of traction driving the wheel, then you only have X-Y left to help you steer.

And what's insane is you would take AWD with all seasons over RWD with snow tires. Personally I would take added traction in all circumstances rather than just added acceleration. Or maybe you just don't really get any snow...
