1. Since snow is a solid form of water, which freezes at 32 degrees F, strickly speaking

the temp of snow is 32. As soon as the temp rises one degree, at 33, it goes to the melted form - water.

Snow is also a good insulator, which is why during avalanches even when temps are much lower, being under snow protects from the extreme cold.
