I am curious what the effect would be on the center diff if one was to go play in the snow using the left foot braking technique to get the car to slide. I can get a pretty decent slide going doing this, but I'm afraid it will do a lot of damage to the center diff if I do it very much. Am I correct?

Cool, thanks. This is my first AWD vehicle, and its not as easy as my old RWD cars to get this thing to slide.

Flick it and give it gas, use the momentum of the car to get the slide going. The weight of the spare+jack etc gives a decent amount of weight to the rear end that you can whip around for quite a bit of fun!

plus you'll have hardy any braking power after 2 pedal pumps. If you don't let off the gas you'll have no vacum left in your booster and you'll be in for a surprise at the 3rd brake pedal push.
I concur the other guys. Scandinavian flick works best.
