I'm having trouble making the snow look like it has some texture and isn't just pure white. I tried lowering the intensity of the lighting, but the map gets a bit too dark for my liking at that point.

So has anyone here learned a trick or two to get the snow to look better?

Use grey-ish lighting, possibly slightly blue.
You can also try colouring the snow tiles directly so you aren't forced to rely purely on lighting.

I'm not sure if the maps Cave, SnowTown or Borealis are still in the game, but you could look at them.

That snow has perfectly good texture. No, wait. That's dust on my monitor. Ew.

Lighting does mean a lot. On my one attempt at making a dry desert with pools of lava, I replaced the default 'sun' with a red tint and it looked fantastic. Felt like you were going to melt. Also helped the game has an actual sand like texture.

Yeah check out Borealis to see how the snow looks there. It's also possible that I need to make the snow texture tile a little nicer. But for now I would just give it a tile colour of something like 100% blue, 95% green and 90% red. Once you actually build a 3D map and get shadows casting on the ground it will look a whole lot better.
