One good thing about winter riding is that often one is riding slower, so there is more room for error with brakes. Most any braking system can be used well-enough. But some times are better than others.
-coaster brakes are good
-disk brakes are good or great
-road brakes are not so good
-v or canti brakes are pretty good.
-fixed gear, in conjunction with some other brakes, is great
