Just as the title says, is there any way that I can get a snow biome without generating a fresh map in Terraria?

You just need an area with a large number of snow blocks, around 500 will get you the most snow, any more should be unnecessary.

You can use programs like TEdit to edit your map to have enough blocks. Or you can put them in your inventory using TerrariViewer and place them manually.

If you can place them in your inventory, couldn't you just mine them on a new map and place them in your pre-1.1 map, as opposed to resorting to using external programs? – oKtosiTe Jan 18 '12 at 11:34
@oKtosiTe Yes, but he said without rendering a new map. – Ronan Jan 18 '12 at 14:05
Well when I said without creating a new map, I just meant being forced to start over. – Pachow Studios Jan 18 '12 at 15:00
@ryansworld10: I assumed that was what you meant. :-) – oKtosiTe Jan 19 '12 at 10:03
