Is WB a huge deal?
Yes, WB is important. You're camera will likely want to turn the snow a mid-tone grey. If your camera has a 'PRE' white balance mode, get yourself a grey card and use your camera manual to set it.
So I have to reset that a million times for every time I step to a different location? I bought a grey card but I need to learn how to use it.

I recommend GENUINE WhiBal G7 Certified Neutral White Balance Card - Studio Kit (3.5"x6")<
or even better
X-Rite ColorChecker Passport Software
So your saying it's crap?
No I'm saying learn how to use it. I've never seen one of those.
Fotodiox has a reputation for producing less than quality stuff.
Lol....k thanx.....I was just thinking ...oh crap I bought some junk!
You planning on shooting a wedding?
Like mentioned if you are metering a scene in snow, the meter will want to try and make it gray, so you'll want to overexpose it a bit to get it to reflect the actual scene.
