Topic: 

snow extent

the total land area covered by some amount of snow; typically reported in square kilometers.
Topic: 

snow flurry

snow that falls for short durations and which often changes in intensity; flurries usually produce little accumulation.
Topic: 

snow grains

precipitation in the form of very small, white opaque ice particles; they resemble snow pellets but are more flattened and elongated, with a diameter less than 1 mm; the solid equivalent of drizzle.

snow layer

a layer of ice crystals with similar size and shape.
Topic: 

snow line

the minimum elevation of snow lying on the ground or glacier surface; the snow line at the end of an ablation season marks a glacier's current equilibrium line.
Topic: 

snow load

the downward force on an object or structure caused by the weight of accumulated snow.
Topic: 

snow patch

relatively small area of snow cover remaining after the main snowmelt period.

snow pellets

precipitation in the form of small, white opaque ice particles; resemble ice grains, but are round (sometimes conical) and about 2-5 mm in diameter.

snow squall

a brief, but intense fall of snow that greatly reduces visibility and which is often accompanied by strong winds.
