Is there a power chair that can handle snow and ice?

I live in Michigan where there is 6 months of snow and ice. I use a power wheelchair. I do not have the muscle strength to use a manual chair due to weakened muscles from MS. I am constantly getting stuck in parking lots, sidewalks and even struggle to drive my power chair onto the platform for my vehicle lift. I have tipped my chair over; twice my chair has slid into the side of my van, crushing my legs. I want to move to a warmer climate but I can't because my husband is still working and can't leave his teaching job. I have good insurance to help with the costs. PLEASE help me to find a solution!
