Sons of the Forest has a seasonal cycle which means you will inevitably face snow. When you start the game, you’ll experience spring and summer. In this time period, harvest as many berries and food supplies as you can carry because winter is coming.

When winter arrives, there will be less food and water and more snow. Snow will make you cold, which will first deplete your stamina and eventually kill you. To stay warm, make sure to build a fire and have a secure base with defensive walls around it since cannibals will still attack.

The only way to remove snow in Sons of the Forest is to survive through the winter or relocate somewhere else. You can move your shelter out of the snowy regions, but if it is snowing everywhere, you’ll just need to survive winter.

There’s no way to turn winter or snow off in Sons of the Forest. Even in the easiest difficulty mode, you’ll still need to survive the snow.

That is our best advice when it comes to removing snow in Sons of the Forest. You can get the shovel and try to move the snow that way, but that method hasn’t been confirmed.
