And since it sounds like you might have never done it before, try it out in a BIG and OPEN parking lot without any pesky curbs or cars to hit. You would be amazed how far a car can slide, especially if the road is icy instead of just snowy.
I do this sometimes on snowy roads, only at slow speeds, and only when there are no other obstacles to hit. Mainly I do it when I'm turning into my driveway, I can get a decent 90 degree rotation out of it and then just calmly pull straight ahead into my drive, its' kinda fun especally after fighting through Edmonton traffic!
haha I actually just did this at the end of my block I made a right turn and the car started sliding out so I finished the job slid onto my block and straightened her right out. I have also been doing this with previous cars for years and years and like someone mentioned earlier started in big open parking lots sending my cars into 180's and sometimes complete 360's but yea I don't do that with my 3 because well I love my car haha.
