How does snow reflect light?

    Most objects reflect light. Visible sunlight is white in color and is made up several wavelengths of different colors, and snow appears white because it absorbs no sunlight, and reflects all of it. Other colored objects absorb certain wavelengths, and reflect others, thus appearing colored. Black objects absorb everything. Snow reflex lights so well because, at a micro level, snow crystal structure provides many faces off which sunlight is reflected.
