Noah, you actually need to give more exposure for snow shots as the luminence and glare from all that snow fools the meter into thinking conditions are brighter than they are - resulting in under-exposure.

Also consider taking a custom white balance shot of the snow itself to avoid any blue casts.

My advice is not to bother with snow ...or at the very least shoot in RAW when possible.

You might need to give as much as 1 to 1.5 stops more exposure, but do some test shots first and check your histogram. If you shoot in RAW then you don't need to worry about the white balance.

My advice, speaking from practical experience is don't eat yellow snow.
