Same here but played in 30 cm. of snow with my 05 FWD. Equinox. I'm starting my 4 th winter and never had problems. This year even better because I'm on winter tires for the first time.

The Equinox would have superb traction with winter tires, I have great traction going forward but not so good braking traction. A set of nokia winter tires 235/60/17 for my LT equinox and it will handle any ice snow covered roads. Just like the weather we are having now.

First, were does the sound seems to be coming from?
Let be tell you what happened with my 05 Equinox, could be the same thing.
There was a humming sound coming from the back and I made some little tests to see what it could be.
When rolling I put the truck in neutral, the sound was still there, rev the motor, the sound didn't change, put the truck in park (motor running), no humming sound. The faster I drove, the higher the sound was. It was a sound like I'd be rolling on tractor tires. Letting the truck roll by itself (on neutral) the sound would change when the truck was slowing down, going down a hill on neutral the sound would change picking up speed.
Had to change a left rear wheel hub bearing. That was it, no more humming sound, it was riding on air.
Hope this helps.
