A lot of people drive Subarus around here. I've never driven one, myself. But my cousin had one ages ago and loved it.

I get by fine with my little Saturn and four studded snow tires. It's all in your tires, just remember that. A four-wheel drive is useless if the tires have no grip. The snow tires make a huge difference in snow, but they don't handle as well on dry pavement.

Other features you might want are anti-lock brakes and traction control.

I've begun looking at Subarus lately. How are the Outbacks compared to the Forrester? Especially for winter driving.

Both are great, even with standard all season tires for winter driving, although I'd recommend a separate set of studded snows or snows for more treacherous back country hilly driving. Think of the Subaru as a four wheeled mobile sled that runs excellent on snow, but does very well on gravel and dirt roads.
