The problem is that the snow melts and then freezes, creating icy patches. Especially if it melts, dribbles across the road/path and then refrezes. I've gotten beat up pretty bad running across these things on regular rubber.

Yeah, if it is dead winter and stays below freezing, good deep lugged tires work OK on fresher snow.
