Default 2009 Forester: Winter tire year round?

My wife has a 2009 Forester with 17” wheels. It needs new tires. Our winters are fairly mild where we recently moved to ( Pacific NW) but we now live on a hill that has become problematic in ice and snow.

I really don’t care for summer performance since this car is just for running the kids around. She also doesn’t drive that much (10k a year). My priorities in a tire are mostly winter traction so That she doesn’t get stranded (again...)

I noticed the Michelin X Ice have a 40k guarantee. I understand they will be loud and not ideal in warm weather, but based on our needs would this be a reasonable tire to run year round?
