Snow can be obtained using a shovel with the Silk Touch enchantment. Destroying snow with a non-silk-touch shovel yields one snowball per layer. If it is destroyed with anything other than a shovel, nothing is dropped (even if using a different Silk Touch tool). Explosions by TNT or creepers will also cause snow to yield a snowball. Snow can also be obtained by causing it to drop into an invalid block space, in which case it drops itself.‌ The dropped snow layer also corresponds with how many layers were in the broken snow pile.

↑ Times are for unenchanted tools as wielded by players with no status effects, measured in seconds. For more information, see Breaking § Speed.

Natural generation < edit>

Snow naturally generates in snowy biomes – snowy tundra, ice spikes, frozen oceans, snowy taiga, frozen river and snowy beach – and in the mountains biome above y-level 90–95. Only blocks with direct access to the sky can generate snow layers naturally (with the exception of some snowy villages, which are intentionally made to generate extra snow in areas inaccessible to the sky).[1]

Snow generates where there is sky access atop buildings in snowy taiga villages. ‌

Snow generates in multiple layers as part of many snowy tundra village structures.

Snow generates exclusively in single layers in Java Edition, but can generate in multiple layers in Bedrock Edition.

Weather < edit>

In snowy biomes or in cold biomes at varying layers, the weather can snow instead of rain. In snowy weather, snow generates on random non-transparent blocks with a block light level of 10 or less, with the exception of ice and packed ice.

In Bedrock Edition, multiple snow layers are built up naturally during snowfall; in Java Edition, snowfall creates only one layer.

Snow layers do not generate if the gamerule doweathercycle has been set to false.‌

Snow golems < edit>

Snow golems generate a trail of snow in snowy, cold, and some medium biomes, or any non-dry biome in Bedrock Edition.

Usage < edit>

Snow can be placed only on a solid block that is not ice. In Java Edition, snow breaks if its support block is removed. In Bedrock Edition, snow is affected by gravity and falls if it becomes unsupported, and breaks if it falls onto an unsuitable block. A player can jump up 1 block and 3 snow layers.

Cover < edit>

If the snow is on a grass block (or mycelium or podzol in Java Edition[2]) the ground cover turns white on the top and around the sides. Snow does not damage tilled and hydrated field areas – it cannot be placed on farmland. A gravity-affected block like sand or gravel does not fall if snow covers the block below it, but the gravity-affected block does replace a snow layer when falling onto it. The texture of the grass block changes to snowy when a single layer of snow is placed on top.[3][4] Thicker layers of snow causes the grass block to revert to plain dirt when the block receives a random tick, similar to regular grass when covered by an opaque block. A plain dirt block with a single layer of snow on top gains a snowy texture if grass spreads to it.

In Bedrock Edition, if leaves are topped with a layer of snow, particles of snow appear to fall through the leaves from the snow layer.

In Bedrock Edition, snow layers can occupy the same space as one-block flowers, mushrooms, and one-block ferns and grass, (however two-block tall plants do not work)[5] and can be layered and mined normally. Placing snow on already-existing plant blocks causes snow to appear around them, but placing plants into an area where there is snow removes the snow.[6]

Snow layers can be used to kill nylium, a mechanic intentionally programmed into the game by Mojang.[7]

Melting < edit>

Snow melts if there is a heat block‌, or block light level of 12 or more. In Bedrock Edition, it also melts in dry biomes, regardless of block light or daylight level. If there are multiple layers, all layers melt at once; the snow levels do not gradually reduce in height.

Most light sources can melt snow but some cannot.

Foxes < edit>

When a fox gets stuck in the snow after missing an attack on prey, it emits particles as it emerges from the snow.
