Each item in Minecraft has a unique ID assigned to it, known as an item ID, this can be used in commands to spawn the item into the game. The item ID for snow block in Minecraft is shown below:
When Minecraft updated to version 1.13, a changed dubbed "The Flattening" was introduced. In "The Flattening", numerical IDs and item data was removed, and some item IDs were changed to make them more logical - Snow Block was one of the many items that had their IDs changed.

The snow block in Minecraft spawns in ice plains, ice spikes, cold taiga, frozen river and cold beach biomes. If broken with a shovel that has the silk touch enchantment, the block is dropped. If broken with any regular shovel, snowballs are dropped. If broken with an item that isn't a shovel, nothing is dropped.
