No. Hubs just make the power available to tire. The differential is what splits the power. In snow you will probably spin all 4 since each tire has the same traction which is none on snow. So basically if you are in 4wd with open diffs you are really in 2wd. One front and one rear tire will have power not both in front or both in back since the differential sends power to the tire with the least resistance(traction). The transfer case is locked so that's why you get power at the front and rear at the same time.
