HELP! steering issue!

So that first real snow we got in the springs the other day scared the hell out of me! Driving to work when I hit areas with snow going 30 the car would pull left and right and I would have to correct every second to keep it out of the other lane.

I thought it was tread issue so I got new tires and alignment but the car still feels weird. Any ideas what could be wrong?

We didn't get that much snow on the NW side of town - how much were you driving through? Because the tires on our cars are pretty wide, they can "plow" some. If one side of the car hits more snow, it can cause the car to "dart" some. That's about the only thing I can think of.

Ya it wasn't much but this is my 3rd season here and have never had it do this before litteraly every second I had to correct one way or the other and it felt like the rear was sliding out.
