Snow (weather-generated) can cover cacti. This could possibly inflict a little damage on an unaware player.
In very specialized cases, snow blocks can be used as a water-gate mechanism. Lava melts nearby snow, and water does not dissolve snow blocks. A triggered lava flow can, thus, melt snow and, in turn, release water. This kind of hack will be strictly obsolete if/when Mojang adds pistons.
Snowballs will shear sheep and push mobs without killing them. This can also be used to get the flying-pig achievement.
Snow blocks are great for Spleef, as they break quite easily.
Snow blocks are good for concealing a vertical-shaft base entrance in tundra/taiga biomes.
It is a white decorative material that doesn't propagate fire like cloth (although it melts).

If you have a saddle, you can throw snowballs at the pig while riding it to go up into the air.
