Re. when to shut off ABS??

Someone posted that when driving in snow, you should turn off ABS. I tend to 
disagree. Last year, during a glorious snow-romp, first time in the quattro, 
I was flying around the snow/icy road. The ABS seemed to work well-stopped 
(pun intended) the car from sliding out of control and provided braking.

There's nothing quite as thrilling as the incipient slip/grab of 4WD in a 
luxury/sports wagon, is there?

After cleaning my wheels, I do apply the brakes hard with the ABS off. Not 
sure why, but sometimes I do.
