Not really. The reason FWD is 'better' in snow is because most FWD cars are as nose-heavy as a lawn dart. If you had terrible weight distribution in a RWD car (but over the rear), it'd do the same.
As soon as you start going up hills, guess where the weight shifts anyway... backwards!
I'd honestly rather have RWD because I hate the lack of steering when the fronts break traction on a FWD car in slippery conditions.
