Cracks and crevices in ice are often blue, as are depressions and shadowed areas in snow, especially older snow with a higher ice content. Falling snow and fresh snow on the surface is white and the image should be balanced to show that as white. Image #3 is the closest to what I would consider reality.

When I used to shoot Kodachrome, under exposing by 1/3 stop would generally produce white snow with bluish shadows on a sunny day.

Of course, there is also yellow snow!
