For sunlit snow matrix has got snow exposures right since the F100 era - provided you do not apply any exposure compensation as you would if using centre weighted or spot.

For snow in shade the latest cameras underexpose a little - easily sorted by looking at the histogram for the first shot.

Great images are often of good subjects.
If they are great images does what lens, body or technique was used matter more than the skill of the photographer?
