These answers are all valid.
You should also include TIRE CHAINS for all drive-wheels, and try them out for a good fit BEFORE you start out. Then add a sturdy snow shovel.
Food, water, spare clothing, thermal blankets, fire, knife and communications. Some form of entertainment can also be just as important to keep your spirits up or to keep small children occupied.
sleeping bag/blanket, matches or fire starter kit, extra socks, tent/tarp, rations, water, possibly sterno type stove, foul weather gear, firearm, knive(s)
A blanket would be a must, also catlitter for traction. I think the best thing to have in this day and age is a good cell phone, or if there is no cell coverage where you will be a good satellight phone.
