I find that the extra width helps a lot with stability. You will never float on uncompacted snow whatever width of tire you have on a mountain bike. But the Freddie´s turns a trip which is a bit hairy into one which is quite stress-free and routine. Of course there is a price to pay in speed and efficiency. I commute in a city environment between cars and buses and staying upright is more important than arriving a couple of minutes earlier.
