Every year since I received a macro lens I have forced myself to go out into the frigid dry winter to hover over various surfaces and try not to breathe out.
It's delightful fun and I'm sure the neighbors think I have too much time on my hands.
The difficult thing is that not all snow looks pretty.
Pollution, the types of storms and how quickly the moisture froze all change the flake. Lots of times they are just little poof balls. So finding the combination of nice looking flakes at a time you aren't doing something else, and there's enough light is a challenge.
