Looks like you found a great spot to shoot. I see what you are going for in the second photo and I like the idea, but the horizons give me a headache. All three are underexposed and they seem soft.

Underexposed! Use aperture Priority is these situations.. going from sunlit to shade, it comes into great use!

Agreed, they do look underexposed. I'll have to play with them a little tonight

I was using aperture priority for exactly that reason, unfortunately they are still underexposed a little.

The mode doesn't matter. The meter sees the scene the same in each. You need to dial in some +EC to bring the snow to white. The camera will try to make it grey which will underexpose the shot. Usually somewhere between +2/3 and +1 works for me.

I find that for shooting over snow, typically set the EC to +1 to +1-1/3. Also shoot raw. The EC setting will get you pretty close and then fix the rest in post.

Snow is hard.

what they said above is exactly right, just make sure on a sunny day you dont completely blow out the whites.

Usually, you can adjust the EC upwards until the snow shows white on your LCD. Providing that puts you in the range of EC +1-+1.3 give or take, then you are getting it correct.

Shooting in snow is tough because the dynamic range that you have to reproduce is really broad. Almost always you are going to have either some blown out areas in the whites or dark featureless areas in the dark. Having a polarizer or ND filter (polarizer acts as a ND filter too) is helpful.
