A very simple quick and effective way of addressing color problems in your images is to apply a photo filter. A photo filter is the digital version of an analog filter that photographers would and some still do attach them to the end of their lenses to give a different color temperature to their images, and we have as one of our available adjustment layers, Photo Filter. So when I choose that and Warming Filter, which is actually what I'm after, is the default option so that's what I get and see how that affects the snow.
Now snow is typically beset by problems of colorcasts; it often looks rather blue in your images, blue and I'm sure you remember it. But if we turn this off, there is the blue snow and there is the much less blue snow with this Warming Filter applied to it. We have all of these options that we can experiment with, so we can just dial those in to your liking, of course, you can just choose another color if you wish. Choose any color from your color picker and you can adjust the density of the filter.
So I could go further with this if I wanted to and actually I quite like that applied to about that degree about 40%. With Preserve Luminosity checked that's going to maintain the brightness values. So that's always a good idea, and I'll just turn that off so we can see the before without blue snow and there with the Photo Filter on without, as it should be, white snow.
