As far as the front wheel slipping around like that, it might be because it isn't contacting anything solid to gain traction from. You might want to consider going with a narrower tire up front. It's counter-intuitive, but the narrower tire will push down into the snow more effectively than a wider tire, which will "float" on top a bit more. When I was using a 2.1" [~52C] studded tire, my front end would wash out constantly in the sloppy crap made of snow, salt and sand that we have here in the winter. I switched to a 38C tire this year, and now I "cut" into the slop much more effectively. YMMV...
