So i was wondering since one of the recent updates brought the possibility of crafting snow panels. This allows you to re-create a snowy biome. Now I was wondering what happens to the snow if you place it in the nether? I then also realised that i never tried placing snow blocks in the nether. Has anyone tested this yet? A link to a wiki would also be appreciated.

  • Does it have to be a specific wiki or does any suffice?

  • No any source stating that you can or cant place snow in the nether would be fine Commented Jun 25, 2013 at 10:36
  • Sorry, I have to downvote for lack of research. Finding the answer to this by trying it would have taken less time than posting the question. Commented Jun 25, 2013 at 18:19
