Jews on Broadway at Ner Tamid March 9!

Laws of Shabbos #175

Since snow does not serve a function like rainwater does, there are those who say it is Muktzeh (and making snow into water is uncommon). However if there is a concern that one will slip on Shabbos, one may rely on the lenient view and shovel the snow away.

To walk through snow is permitted as it is moving Mukzteh with one’s body which is indirect and therefore allowed.

Making snowballs poses different issues as it is similar to building, and therefore according to many authorities forbidden on Shabbos.
