Forget the sunny 16 rule, that is just a rough guideline.

If you need to meter the snow outside, look for something gray as a reference point. Mason work, a tree, a Gray card, your hand (add 1 stop if you are Caucasian)

The D800 camera has an awesome dynamic range. You will just need to know and learn how to meter the light more effectively. I suggest that you read up on this matter and great detail.

I would propose the following two assignments for you; photo a black scarecrow in a coal mine, or a white bunny in a snowstorm.
