The first link of a simple Google search of the term, "snow/water ratio at a specific temperature" is:

https://spacemath.gsfc.nasa.gov/earth/88Mod11Prob1.pdf

Based on that page:

20:1 @ -7.8° C, (i.e., 20 cm of snow is equivalent to 1 cm of water).

Thank you very much. I am trying to create a climate of a very high Tropical mountain where the top of the mountains gets snow year with average temperature of -7.6°C if the amount of snow that falls yearly can be melted to 3000 mm of water, what is the amount of snow that falls in cm?
