Nivean
--------
It has been said (wrongly) that the Eskimo people have 1000 words for "snow". I thought I was sure about "nivean", and so was a bit taken aback at not finding it in my Oxford English Dictionary. A quick search online reveals that it - of course - comes from the Spanish Nieve.

Anyway, I sure hope someone besides me appreciates the artistry to be found in wind-sculpted snow.
