|Full name||Snow (Tile)|
|Minimum tool level||Wood|
|Reaction to redstone||Inert|
|Affected by gravity||No|
Snow tiles appear in snowfall, which occurs in Cold Taiga, Tundra, and Ice Plains Spikes Biomes. When broken with a Shovel, it drops 1 Snowball. Snow covers can also be crafted with 3 Snow blocks, which makes six covers. Snow melts in sufficient light (unless the light is from the Sun in a biome where snow naturally generates).
When a Grass, Mycelium, Podzol or Dirt block is covered by snow, it does not affect the spreading of grass. Farmland can be covered with snow, but not through snowfall; the player must place it. This does not turn farmland back to dirt, nor does it protect the farmland from being trampled.
Snow covers can be placed on top of each other. Eight snow covers stacked on top of one another make one snow block.
- Snow covers can appear on transparent blocks, such as Leaves.
- Unlike in Pocket Edition, Snow Tiles are not gravity-affected.
