I have used a variety of different ones for many years now, but for MTBing during the winter they're usually only needed when very specific conditions arise (a mix of thaw and sub zero temperatures leading to lot of ice), otherwise a wide tyre with good traction and low pressure is better when riding on snowy trails.
My recommendation is these ones http://www.suomityres.fi/h300.html relatively light with a folding bead.

That's the same ebay seller and the same tyres. They are now £106 each plus postage.
There's slightly more choice for 26", but still not much if you want to avoid Schwalbe.
Two more from the UK, both about £60 each.

Or fewer spikes on a skinnier tyre for £33
