I've dealt with this problem in the past by saving a copy of the image with each white balance setting, opening all of the images in my image editor and combing them to create the final version.

That said, the color temperature issues aren't the only problem with that particular image - the composition is poor (too much uninteresting space on the left), and there's not really a clear subject. I would wager that even if you corrected the color, it'd get rejected for "Cropping" and again for "Poor Aesthetic Quality."

Is that a road?
Rhymes with slice, rice and mice, and probably should be spelled like "Tice."

At the very least, make the snow white, not pink. But I agree about the composition, too.
