Information about Snow and Ice on the Course
If a ball lies through the green or on a tee and it is in or touches snow or ice or if snow or ice interferes with the players stance or the area of the intended swing the player may take relief from snow or ice, without penalty, as it was casual water under Rule 25-1b(i). The player may also choose to regard snow and ice as loose impediments and may then remove snow and ice under Rule 23-1. If it is known or virtually certain that a ball that has not been found is lost in snow or ice the player may, without penalty,  proceed under Rule 25-1c(i)
If a ball is on the putting green of the hole being played and lies in or touches snow or ice or when snow or ice interferes with the players stance or the area of the intended swing or when snow or ice interferes with the players line of putt the player may, without penalty, take relief from snow and ice as it was casual water under Rule 25-1b(iii). The player may also choose to regard snow and ice as loose impediments and may then remove snow and ice under Rule 23-1. If it is known or virtually certain that a ball that has not been found is lost in snow or ice the player may, without penalty,  proceed under Rule 25-1c(iv).
If the ball is in a bunker and lies in or touches snow or ice or when snow or ice interferes with the players stance or the area of the intended swing the player may only take relief, without penalty, from snow or ice as if it was casual water under Rule 25-1b(ii). If it is known or virtually certain that a ball that has not been found is lost in snow or ice the player may, without penalty, proceed under Rule 25-1c(ii).  
If the ball is in a lateral water hazard or a water hazard the player has no right to relief from snow or ice and must either play the ball as it lies or proceed under Rule 26.
