    You will have to use water If you intend to temper metals, snow is a bad heat conductor to stretch the metal molecules into a rigid structure. It will cool, but not at any rate or uniformity.

            If it's good enough for conan's sword, it's good enough for a natty, rough and tumble rebar.

              Oil is the best. That's how the Viking sword was tempered in a recent documentary.
