I'm out before the plows most times, and I've found dropping it into 4Hi to get going, and then popping back into 2hi for better steering once at speed seems to work well. I just feel better that 100% of my front wheel traction is for directional control and if i start spinning or see some real deep stuff i've got the 4wd card yet to play. I've also got the stock mud terrains which are spectacular in the snow.

Just remember, 4x4 helps you GO better in the snow... it won't help you STOP any better.
Fascinating argument I believed as well. However, when some else gives you his experience that conflicts your belief you have to question yourself. I theorised 4x4 helps you stop because it locks the centre differential, while under braking, the front axle is being forced to spin, rather the locking up. Expert explanations confirms it:
