Like flying, I've taken care of the family, mortgage, and every other thing first. Now I get to take care of me enjoying the fruits of my 40+ years of working my butt off. . I drive a '93 40th, 6 speed. Handles like crap in the snow but I did see a C5 out in 3" of driving snow doing a lot better than the 4 wheel drives. It's more about the driver than the car. Read "All Corvettes are Red" about the design, build, and testing of the then new C5. Tested in the great cold and snowy north, they paid attention to driving in the snow. . I can only imagine the newer ones got better at it.
