Exclamation 99 E46 323i trac control?! HELP

I have had my 323 for about 3 months now and I have loved everything about it! it is a fun car to drive when the roads are dry... However, I live in Georgia and we just experienced our first snow of the year and my car is falling flat on its FACE! When I try to drive on the icy roads the traction control is kicking in and bogging down the motor to the point that the lights start to dim and the car begins to stall out... The stupid yellow light comes on, on the dash so i know its the trac control. the roads are bad right now but my other car is able to get around in it. Can I turn the trac control system off in my car?? I see some of the other year models have the option but cant find anything for mine...

Very likely a tire issue... Very bad road surface there!
