Snow is not dangerous as you can just be trapped.

But ice is dangerous as you can slide and hit other cars.

Also we don't get a lot of snow here in Vancouver Area, so we can say we rarely will be stuck on the road. However, we'll definitely have lots of icy roads.

But since SUV's tires have more surface area and larger mass(weight) so this is why I think its safer

Also compare to a sedan, SUV tend to be stronger and safer in a way that if you were to go head to head collision, SUV will definitely win.

tho safer stronger car, might have to go American =) like Ford lol, but naw!

As for parking, I admit, my gf suck at it lol, most girls can't park, but I think most SUV nowadays have the technology which parks for you =) she will definitely be using that haha
