الجواب حامداومصليا

According to Abū Ḥanīfah and Muḥammad, Tayammum is valid with everything which is of the genus of earth, like soil, sand, stones, gypsum, lime, kohl and arsenic.

So making Tayammum with snow is not permissible.

ويجوز التيمم عند أبي حنيفة و محمد رحمهما الله تعالي بكل ما كان من جنس الأرض كالتراب والرمل والحجروالجص والنورة والكحل والزرنيخ

And Allah knows best
