Default Ice and snow driving, what are you techniques?

With the current weather people will be out and about in the snow/ice. Iím no expert in snow driving but I would say Iíve had my fair share of experience. I was taught to bring a car to an allmost stop only using the clutch and gears from a steady speed if you were traveling in the snow. Obviously this takes a lot of planning and reading the road ahead but it works. As we know if you use the brakes it normally ends in disaster.

But what about if you have an auto? Iíve not driven an auto in the snow before, itís ok getting going but itís the stopping thatís important and a lot of our volvos are auto especially the awd models.

So what techniques do you use to get around safely?
