FWD is generally excellent in snow but a few caveats for your consideration here:
1. I always tell people that successful snow driving is 25% car, 25% tires and 50% driver. So what I mean is that *any* technology can only take you so far. FWD is most effective with fully dedicated snow tires, not "all season" tires
2. Any passenger car's snow abilities are restricted by ground clearance at some point---this is why 4X4s are jacked up---if the snow is deep enough, a passenger car will ground out on the center line between the tire ruts in the snow. If the AWD version of this Volvo has a higher ground clearance, this gives you a bit of an advantage
3. AWD passenger cars are NOT off-road vehicles--they are meant to perform in conventional paved or very improved roads.
If you're talking about driving to a ski lodge, I think FWD is fine. If you're thinking about extreme blizzard condition and heavy snows on poor roads, you might consider the AWD or a truck.
