SNOW! 330i w/ good snow tires vs xi??...Opinions and experience

Ok so definitely looking to purchase a 330 in the near future.
I am wondering how much of a difference there will be from a 330i with some expensive snow tires vs having the xdrive when driving in snowy conditions? My wife will be using the car sometimes so she wants the xdrive model but it seems much easier to find what we want in terms of packages in a rwd model. Also no chance of getting a zhp if its going to be the xi.

Any experience with this would be appreciated. Live in the NE and get a few storms a year. Just looking for safe driving in light snow after plowing, not looking to be able to drive thru 5 inches of snow very often....
