Snowflakes aren't white, but when lots of snowflakes stick together on the ground, it looks like it's white, but each individual snowflake is actually clear. This is because snow is frozen water, and water is clear, so snowflakes are too.

Or so I think :)

I know i will lose this one because you are right it is clear.
on another note here is a cool trick to see why it is white

stick a piece of tape to another, then another, and so on. every time you add a piece, it is harder to see through.
so, the conclusion of your experiment is the same with snow. glass and tape relate to snow.

take one piece of clear glass and place it on a flat surface. observe. take another piece and set it on top. observe, and so on.you will notice that the flat surface underneath the glass starts to get harder to see as you add more glass. it turns white.

Snow flakes are not wjite, snowflakes are tiny particles of ice magnetically joined in such a way that they are no longer transparant. So 1 snowflake is inface white.
Sorry to be so serious.
