At first I thought it might be the lugs catching and slipping in the snow and ice as it only does it when turning sharp and driving slow ie...turning into a parking stall. After hearing it this morning I would like to get some opinions and see what your thoughts are. If it isn't the tires what would be making the noise, front wheel ujoints?
U-joints or hubs. If it was you're carrier, you'd be hearing it at all RPMs.
Put the front axle on jack stands and spin the tires. They should be quite. If you here a slight grind or even a rumble/crumble, it's your hubs. If they are quite, turn the wheels to one side and while spinning the tires, take a look at the U joints and see if you can notice any play. A dead give away on the U-joints (though not a definitive answer) is if you see any fresh grease or if the rubber on the joint caps has started to separate or crack. You can also put a pry bar on them to see if they have any additional play.
