Is this a good product for front porch? Will it be too slippery in the winter with snow on it?

Yes Trex can be a bit slipper when wet. If traction is a big concern for you, then look into PVC products instead, such as Clubhouse, Wolf, Azek, TivaDek, Veka, etc. Clubhouse is a great Canadian product that has amazing traction!

Trex has a wood grain built into it, so it has decent grip in the snow / ice. It say it's at par, or even slightly superior to wood.

Trex comp decking is the best! Thinking of walking on it in the winter? No problem! Put a temporary artificial turf area rug around the area you wish to walk on and there ya go. Heres a link of what it looks like Diane.

Yes, it can be very slippery when it's wet however there is wood grain that has a better tread on it as well as other products PVC excetera do a bit of homework or call a local trusted Pro contractor in your area. It is better than wood. Jeff
