Re: how "White should snow be.?

Snow, I don't see it as any different to any other subject and expose using the histogram. You can't afford to blow your highlights, or the snow is white bright white...

All your shots are on the bright side for my taste, but taste is all it comes down to - and who you are trying to please, or what you are trying to say. You have a ton of shadow detail, but no highlight detail at all, giving a blizzard like appearance. Brighter than reality to me, I'd have most likely upped the shutter speed to control it.
