First of all, select an image in order to make a snow effect. Now, create a new layer. Fill the new layer with black and then press OK. Go to Filter> Pixelate> Mezzotint and then OK from the above toolbar. Make sure that you select the type as ‘Coarse Dots.’ Again go to Image> Adjustments> Levels and make the adjustments that you feel is needed to be done. The layer should be ‘Normal’ and choose ‘Screen.’ That is the whole process. However, if you want to keep a good depth, you need to create a new layer. Create new fill or adjustment layer that of a ‘Solid Color.’ Fill the new layer with black. Go to Filter> Pixelate> Mezzotint and then OK from the above toolbar. Again go to Image> Adjustments> Levels and make the adjustments. Now, go to Filter> Pixelate> Crystallize and increase the cell size up to 12-15 which should be good. The layer should be ‘Normal’ and choose ‘Screen.’ Go to Filter> Blur> Motion Blur and the distance should be around 18-20 pixels. After clicking OK, it will end the proceedings.
I hope that it will help you and from now on, hopefully you will make more and more snow effect pictures like this and be an expert in this field in the future.
