Default Good Colorado snow tires?

Just wondering if anyone has strong opinions on snow tires that are suitable for condtions commonly found in Colorado. I'm looking to buy some snows to fit the stock 16's and would like to know what has/hasn't worked for you Rocky Mountain folks.

If you go up to the mountains just for ski days, I would suggest Dunlop Winter Sport M2s. They have awesome dry abilities and good powder/packed snow traction. They are not the best on ice though. If you spend a lot of time up in the snow, then get something more hard core like the Artic Alpins or Hakka Qs.

I read somewhere that Costco had a great deal going on Arctic Alpins including mounting and balancing. They're not the best in the snow but really shine on ice and they don't act like a snow tire in the dry.

I have the Michelin Arctic Alpins (205x50x16) and I really like 'em. They are great on hard snow pack and ice. Deep snow there still pretty good but not as good as a dedicated deep snow tire. I had no troubles with them gettin' crazy for the last two years. Always predictable.

I've also heard good things about the Dunlop M2s. I'll probably upgrade the RE-92s to these this winter.
