    Leather should just stop freezing. However Frost Walker should allow you to walk on top of it. At the moment Frost Walker doesn't really have any practical use since boats are still faster on the water anyways. I think this makes more sense gives it more use.

    Today snapshot 20w48a came out, and I must say that I strongly dislike how any piece of leather armor prevents freezing entirely, and I believe that it should be changed back to requiring the full set. Additionally, it would make more sense if the freezing effect did not go away immediately after leaving powder snow, it should remain for a good 30 seconds, and go away at the same time as the frost on player vision. Going near a heat/light source could increase the speed at which the freeze goes away. To go along with this, the freezing effect/being in powder snow should slow entities down, like soul sand. This way, powder snow would actually have a chance to freeze you, and it would be a real danger.

    The freezing mechanic should be reverted back to 20W46A, where you need all 4 pieces of leather armor to not freeze, instead of just 1, so it's a more effective trap, especially since you're still fine as long as you have a shovel, & the process of freezing is slow. It would make using leather armor as a whole a little bit better too.

    A dispenser with an empty bucket should be able to fill that bucket with powdered snow either from a cauldron or the ground, like with water.

    Without being able to stack the powdered snow buckets, building anything with powdered snow will be incredibly tedious.

    "Heating" a cauldron with powdered snow in it should convert the snow into water, possibly by having fire or campfire underneath it.

    Needs major fixes and biome integration

    I agree that you would need all 4 pieces to completely prevent freezing perhaps without a complete set it should only slow it down. Additionally I think the freezing effect should last longer after you get out of the snow. Other possibilities to make the effect more unique may possibly include the freezing effect preventing regeneration when it is on. Additionally I still think Frost Walker should be what allows you to walk on the snow instead of leather boots, and I think leather armor should be what prevents the freezing effect. It doesn't make sense for leather boots to allow you to walk on powdered snow since their surface area should be the equivalent of all other boots in the game. However I do believe it makes sense for frostwalker since its main function is freezing the water beneath you to walk upon it, in other words in would freeze the powdered snow more to make it more solid so you can walk on it. Additionally at the current moment frostwalker isn't that practical due to you being able to simply navigate faster in a boat, and frost walker its literally in the name. Of course one may have to under these circumstances make it so one of the enchantments mobs can spawn with in snowy biomes is frostwalker.

    The snowgolem should interact with the powder snow in some way. Maybe it wouldnt take damage from rain, standing inside powder snow. It's snowballs could also inflict damage, when in powder snow.

    i live in snow biomes and cant wait to have this as a extra challenge and the best part is the edge of the screen

    I think observers should be able to detect if someone is standing in powder snow that is in front of it. I also think it shouldn't be kept in a bucket and be more like a block. It should only be picked up with silk touch.

    Just a small thing regarding powder snow cauldrons, I hope to see dispensers with buckets have the ability to pick them up so they can be set up for fully automatic farming and possibly for other redstone uses.

    Also, maybe if there was some way to stack them up to 16 or something like that, it wouldn't be so bad either. It would make life so much easier if you didn't have to go back and forth placing a single "block" when you need to use them in a big area.

    Powered snow shoul be extracted for a cauldron using a bucket (and be putted back) but once placed down, It can also be mined as a block and not only with a bucket. This will add a more intresting feature to an already unique block! It's not convinient to use 2 inventories for a stack of snowier snow, is it?

    A lot of people are suggesting things that were already added. If you are suggesting things because bedrock doesn't have them, don't worry, they will obviously be changed to match each other before the full release.

    Just for people who don't know, here are the things that already exist for powder snow, please know these before posting something because it might already be there:

    When the frost appears on your screen, you slowly take freezing damage (and your hearts go blue and frosty when you are freezing)

    you can only climb/jump out of the snow, and walk on the snow, when you are wearing leather boots

    small, light mobs don't sink into it (rabbits, silverfish, and endermites)

    wearing any piece of leather armor will stop freezing damage (it was recently changed to this instead of needing full leather armor)

    it is not affected by gravity

    (I don't work at Mojang or anything, I just thought that people should know this)

    Instead of climbing keeping space, why not jump multiple times to get out of the snow, it is more unique and fun! , in addition to a sound when leaving with particles.

    Maybe powdered snow can reduce fall damage.

    Id like to request/suggest the addition of a drinkable Snowball/Slushie food item, crafted using 1 Powdered Snow Bucket, 1 wild berries, and 1 bottle of honey

    Perhaps, instead of leather boots, you add snowshoes which can be crafted with one polished wooden slab under the boots.

    And perhaps this snow can be melted quicker than regular snow when placed next to a torch, lit furnace, magma block, or fire.

    If a mammal, non-skeleton entity (an entity that relies on body heat) without leather armor has been inside the block for more than two (+/-) minutes it will incrementally turn into ice and the entity will be trapped without the ability to move unless you have a potion of fever which works by increasing body heat, turning powder snow, ice and regular snow to water within one second of contact with said blocks. However its downfall lies in the fact that it reduces the ability of the entity to regain health and causes damage of its own after three minutes, but this can be mitigated with the potion of fire resistance. Leather garments (armor) can be worn to prevent undesired melting of frozen objects in adjacence to an entity with potion of fever.

    This can have an enchanted counterpart of garment or only exist as an enchantment, but this is something that I thought of and may have value in circumstances of the likes of powdered snow.

    If an entity perishes inside the snow, the items become buried inside the snow, similar to how blocks in archaeology sites will be. This would allow the blocks to remain inside the snow without despawning but would make them harder to find (because the items may be dispersed). This may be very difficult to pull off (especially if there are many items in the players inventory) but it could have similar alternatives.

    I would like if the ability to inflict the freeze effect through commands so it would be possible to make a custom mob that can breath ice.

    The scaffolding-like movement possible using powder snow is ridiculous. It makes it possible to walk over the trap block without harm.

    Powdered snow placed in water should become a solid block for a short time before melting. Kind of like how in real life if you were to put a snowball in water, it sort of condenses a little bit before it melts.

    Maybe instead of leather armor to protect the yourself from freezing, you could shear a goat and get rough wool to make wool armor?

    You know how you get hypothermia when you are in power snow? What if that happens if you are in a cold biome with no armor? Also, you could get hyperthermia when in a desert in full armor or near lava.

    I think powder snow should have gravity, and stem from the source block, similar to water or lava, but only two blocks downward, two blocks outward, and without the ability to move objects or entities. The idea behind this is that it could create a slope that is suitable for skiing while not disturbing the blocky nature of Minecraft.

    Frost walker would not cause one to stop sinking into the snow. Because of the ice crystal's irregular and relatively robust structure, the flakes are not uniformly spaced; they are sparse, for that reason they are light and are no match for dense objects. Simply subjecting them to colder temperature won't increase their compactness and therefore structural load; they are already as frozen as they can be. However, snowshoes disperses the weight that is loaded on the snow, or, conversely, it gathers more structural loading to the object that is attempting to walk on the powder snow.

    Powder Snow buckets should be stackable to atleast 16, so should all other buckets

    You shouldn’t sink if you’re crouching. This should not compete with the leather boots feature because you still move really slow when crouching. Tread lightly and you won’t fall.

    1. The entire set of leather armor should protect against freezing, and the individual pieces only slow it down.

    2. Snow Golems, Strays, Polar Bears, Snow Foxes, Snow Villagers and Iron Golems should not take damage from powdery snow.

    3. When a regular Szielet falls into powdery snow, it should turn into a Stray after death, just like a Zombie after drowning turns into a Drowned.

    Powder snow should spawn naturally in snowy tundras and the new mountain generation.
