I adjusted the levels as there was a gap in the histogram on the shadows site. (e.g. no information in the shadows)

I felt that the original was a little hazy. I adjusted the levels on shadows a little and added a small curves for contrast. I also sharpened the photo altough I am not sure it was needed.

Just removing the haze with a levels and curves adjustment. Best to use a CP filter and wait for softer light.

Adjusted the white and black point in levels. Added contrast through a curves adjustment layer. Cloned out the human elements and added sharpness

Changed the crop so to create more depth into the photo. The clear blue sky didn't add much anyway. I also adjusted the contrast a little to give a bit more color.

When you open the original photo, you see that there is a huge gab on the right in the histogram. You can actually see that there is a peak in the center of the histogram. Part of this is good, because the wood is nearly 18% grey. However, the gab does indicate that there is no information in the highlights. By sliding the highlight slider toward the left close to the first little peak, the snow will turn white again.

I've also adjusted the shadows a little and added a bit more sharpness.

I really do hope this helps for your next snow photo.
