First up: ALL CAPITALS is equivalent to shouting, and really poor netiquette...

That out of the way, I'd suggest building up the snow back with styrofoam and coating it with some kind of white filler or plaster to create the look of snow. Make sure it's fairly bright white, if necessary by painting it.

If you want to spend a bit more money, you could also buy one of the snow materials sold for diorama modellers, which have some kind of sparkling material in them; you could probably also create this effect yourself by grounding up glass, but be sure you know what you're doing before attempting that.
