Winter Cycling - Would this make good winter bike

I bought a Cannondale Comfort hybrid a few years ago to ride around the neighborhood with my wife. I ended up riding it on my 25 mile round trip commute and always enjoyed the bike. This year I bought a Surley LHT. I think I want to try winter biking and was wondering if the hybrid would make a good winter bike. It has a suspension front fork and suspension seat post, SRAM grip shifters and side pull brakes on the CAAD aluminum frame. It has a triple chain ring and 8 in the rear. The tires are 26x2. I would add studded tires and fenders. Appreciate any thoughts, tips and advice.
Some studded tires and fenders, with routine maintenance and practice, can make any bike into a decent winter bike. It depends on your particular commute route, street plowing, ice, etc. Your hybrid will probably be fine.
