Depends on what you call, "snow country". In places that regularly get heavy, constant snow, it's much easier to get around in it. Better infrastructure, and drivers who are used to it. And it packs down and is easier to drive on. I'd rather drive through a foot of snow in Wisconsin than a half-inch in Louisiana (done that, it sucked).
And most people in my line of work plan their vehicle purchases accordingly.
Well, I am from South Louisiana, have lived in Michigan, and agree with your assessment of the roads in snow. Worst I ever saw was in DFW when we had the cobblestone ice. (Google it, it was quite the news story here a few years ago.)
My comment was really directed at the fact that in places like Wisconsin, you typically can't dig a hole for Mama till the ground thaws.
I was shocked when I lived in Michigan and discovered you couldn't build houses year round up there.
