On roads partially covered with snow, I just leave 4WD off and keep it in 2WD. Only if it's fully covered with white and I can't see the asphalt will I kick it over to 4WD. Usually rely on how much I'm slipping in 2WD. If I feel slip ever time I hit the gas, it's 4WD, but if the road is partially covered, keep it in 2WD. Less control, but if the road is only partially covered it shouldn't be too bad. And better safe than sorry with binding the drive.
