Default Tire pressure and snow performance

Hi all, just wonder if tire pressure would affect the handling in snow. I am running stock-sized SP5000 with 34 psi all around. The car doesn't feel as grippy as it was last winter. Would increasing/decreasing the air pressure improve the handling in snow at all? Please let me know what you think! Thanks!

i was always told to run around 28-30psi for snow driving. i run 32-35psi regularly. of course the pressure will change depending on outside temperatures.
