Can't help you with the snow - but can vouch for the NEX durability in rain, humidity, heat, and all forms of tropical weather.  No problems so far for me with two NEX bodies over the past 2+ years in some of the very hottest and most humid weather on the planet - mine have gotten wet in sudden rainstorms, misted on, fogged over with condensation almost daily, blowing sand and dust clouds enveloping them, covered in ants and gnats, thrown into Ziploc bags in ferocious thunderstorms and downpours, and been liberally coated in salt spray.  No glitches from either body with normal, logical maintenance - dabbing water gently off the body, keeping important openings and cracks free of debris, always wiping down the body when corrosive materials get on it, etc.
