I just had a chance to test the tire in winter conditions given the mid atlantic blizzard we just experienced. Traction in snow and slush is very good. Ice traction is not as good, but this is to be expected with a performance winter tire. Driving around in the worst of the conditions was not a problem, but as the snow piles up ground clearance becomes the issue. Performance in the dry and wet is average for a performance winter. My previous tires were Dunlop Wintersport M3s, and the LM 60s are comparable in performance, with a slight dry handling and steering responsiveness going to the M3s.

Overall, if the majority of your winter driving is on cold dry and cold wet roads, but you want additional traction over an all season in snow/slush, the LM 60s are a very good choice.
