Are you speaking of the blue cast? If that's it, images take in the shade on a sunny day have a blue cast. You eyes adjust for it, but the camera doesn't. Add some warmth to it either in raw, or color balance in post.

Drop the aperture number and bump up the iso for correct exposure as well.

Also check your white balance. The tungsten setting can give a blue cast as well. And as said above your aperture seems a bit high. Try that :)

I would expect the snow is exposed quite well. Add some exposure compensation to compensate for it.

was it shot in RAW or JPEG?
quite a lot can be done in lightroom to fix this image

can you post a bigger size of the image? maybe we can then attempt at some PP to see what we can fix

if you have a flash,
use it as fill flash, and expose for the snow so you wont lose the details in the snow, yet get a perfectly lit subject, it might take some time to balance these two if
you didn't do it before

An easy way to fix this photo.. is to, in either curves or level, choose the eyedropper to the right. Then select the WHITEST part of the snow. Click OK. This selects your white balance. But also be careful, because whatever area you select is to be the absolute whitest part (pixel) of the image. If you dont select what is to be the whitest part, it will "overexpose" the rest of the image.
