I would question the type of tires you have and I'd also question your knowledge of ABS brakes and how they work.

You have a lightweight small car. You can improve your traction with a good set of snow tires, say some Hankook's . Look for a tire that have a wide agressive tread design that will bite the snow and release it easily. Snow tires will be noisier than regular tires due to the tread design but it is worth it for a few months a year. Sounds like the ABS is working properly. You will just have to adjust to conditions.

You failed to mention what tires you have. All season or winter? Cheapy, mid or expensive? If you are in the snow belt region then you should invest in some decent winter tires. All seasonal tires are not suitable for the winter as even tire manufacturers have now admitted to its limitations. The compound in an all season tire will harden in colder temperatures giving you less traction whereas the winter tire still remains soft. Also, a drivers experience when it comes to winter driving will also be a factor. At first snowfall it is a good idea to go in an open area like an empty parking lot and begin to drive wildly with your car learning how to maneuver in the snow....it will help you to adjust your driving and be ready for the snow covered roads ahead.

What brand and model are your new tires? If they are not considered winter/snow tires you can certainly expect the control issues you are having. Add to that your Accent is a extremely light vehicle, sliding on frozen surfaced should be expected without being outfitted with the proper type of tires.
