Yes, in that you will have more chances (four instead of two) to get traction in slippery conditions. So, on slippery slopes or in icy conditions, you will have a better chance of getting your car moving. You won't get stuck as easily on country roads. There are also some advantages in controlling your car in situations where traction is bad, but remember this:
AWD doesn't help you stop any better when traction is bad. When your brakes are on, AWD, FWD, and RWD are the same, since there's no power being applied to ANY wheel.
Anti-lock braking helps here, but whether the ABS is on a car with AWD, FWD, or RWD makes no difference.
A common danger for drivers of AWD cars driving for the first time in bad weather is their belief that they can move better in ice or snow than other cars. Well, they can. So, they tend to drive too fast because acceleration is easy. However, they soon find, much to their surprise, that turning and braking are no better than for other cars. They often learn this as they're sliding into those other cars.
Hope this helps.
