The root of the problem is exposure,  the  snow  throw off the camera meter  system causing problems.

If you  shoot in raw and use lightroom  then it a simple matter of changing the exposure.   Normally  by the time you get snow to be white the rest the color fall into place.

A second solution is to set  your exposure compantion knob on the top of your camera  to +1 or +2.

For more information  just google  "exposure snow photography"  and some good info will come up

I have order a circular Polarizer for my g15   and plan to post some results.   I am hopeful it help with snow and bright light,
