If I ever had to ride in the snow, slush, and ice again I'd get studded tires. And fenders with a lot of clearance.
EDIT: Frame-saver is stuff you can spray inside the tubes of a frame to reduce/prevent rust/corrosion. Important in the wet and salt. An internal hub like the ones you had on kids 3-speed bikes in the long ago will not freeze up when slush builds up on them. Slush build up on a normal drive train can leave you stuck in one gear.
