Well, your wheels may present a valid argument, but I don't really
see any reason to buy snows on a quattro (warning: heresy alert!)

I live in hill country in NH, and am an avid skier with my family.
My 100Q gets through the snow magnificently with all-seasons on it.
In fact, last year, it got through fine with almost bald Comp T/As
in the back.  Last year, we had about 175" of snow, and I drove
through most of it in the mountains.

I'm looking forward to this winter with my D60A2s.

I know a lot of people who claim that snows will radically improve
your snow capability, but I don't think Baltimore gets nearly enough
snow to worry about it.
