Can't creep MDX down hill. Design flaw with 1st gear?

I just purchased a slightly used 2014 MDX Advance with SH-AWD. I took it up to my cabin in the mountains which has a steep gravel driveway 1/2 mile long. No problem going up, but getting down will be a nightmare in winter! The vehicle WILL NOT STAY IN FIRST GEAR. There's no engine braking. When I use paddle shifters 1st gear flashes and it stays in 2nd gear.

HOW am I supposed to get down in the snow and ice?
