Snow forms when water vapor condenses and freezes into ice crystals. As the ice crystals fall from the clouds, they melt and then refreeze. This creates larger ice crystals which produce fluffy snow.
Snow is formed when water vapor is deposited in the higher areas of the atmosphere at temperatures less than zero degrees centigrade. That is when snow falls to the ground.
