2007 STi cutting power while spinning in snow?

Good Evening Gents, first off I'd like to say I hope this is being posted in the correct area, I read the posting rules sticky and I shall gladly abide by them all, I'm just posting this in here 'cause I'm not sure where else it should go! Apologies if its in the wrong area.
Now, on to my problemo. We just had our first snowfall of the winter this morning in Manitoba, Canada, and being a Subaru owner, well I decided to obviously take the car out for a little spin. However, I quickly figured out I was having issues. I am able to take off like usual no problem, however, as soon as I throttle it enough to start spinning, I usually lose power immediately after. I'll try my best to explain it...I take off in first, driving slowly on a snowy, empty parking lot, with no one around for miles. I then proceed to throttle it enough to get it to spin, I then let off the throttle to slow myself down somewhat, and immediately try to throttle again to try to keep the drift going, however, the second time I punch the throttle I have no power, once I wait for the RPMs to drop back down to whatever, 1-3k, I can punch it again for a little bit, it spins out, then I'll let off the throttle, and always the second time around in the cycle I have no power! I'm stumped! On the road I can tear thru my gears no problem, I've launched the car, it does fine, sometimes however in the past when I have drifted a corner on dry pave, starting off in first, slowly coming into the corner then gunning it, Ill swing out but at around 5200-6k RPMs It would occasionally just completely cut out instead of going all the way to redline...

well, it could be that some of the electronic nannies are kicking in.

are you seeing ANY lights going on in the dashboard?

In particular, is your DCCD light flashing? If not, what about the Rear Diff'l light?
