Snow

Snow. Apparently the Inuit have over 50 words for snow. I only have one but I wish I had more. How can one word describe all the different types of snow that I have seen, felt, tasted?
The snow of my childhood is purest white and oh so warm. That snow is mixed with the soft white melting marshmallows clinging to the sides of half drunk cups of hot chocolate. That snow rests on stunted jack pines and hides the kingfisher and the cardinal alike. That snow makes the perfect seat to pull off ice skates from frozen toes and aching legs.
