I'm an excellent snow driver, but only because I drove like a madman as a kid. Miraculously I have never been in a snow related crash.
When my customers asked me for advice for new teenage drivers, I told them to take them to an autocross, where they could learn the limits of their machine and skills. Exactly what you posted redpoint only different conditions.

I never tried ice racing but I think it would be an absolute blast, especially without studded tires that are still illegal in Virginia.

You have to know your limits to make good judgements and nothing replaces practice in identical conditions.
