Sand makes sense. I am skeptical on snow.

When it comes to cars, you generally want thin tires that will cut through/displace the snow. They have a smaller area of ground contact with higher pressure.

Larger/wider tires get stuck on top of the snow, and fail to provide traction with the ground.

More pronounced notches allow for snow displacement and better traction on packed snow, but all else equal are more effective on thin tires than wide ones.

You can cut through the snow or you can sit on top of it. On a bicycle, I think you'd rather sit on top.

Surly makes these bikes for flotation on snow. You air the tires down and get good traction. I haven't ridden one yet but that's what they're for. Very different from cars since you aren't trying to get pressure down to the earth with these tires, just the top layer of snow.

tl;dr what my fellow 941xx resident said.
