"Yesterday we spent a beautiful day on the snow" marked incorrect. We were not buried IN the snow after avalanche... Even Grammarly agrees with me.

On the snow is also correct, but "in the snow" isn't wrong. In the Northeast it's common to say "we played in the snow". I've never heard anyone here say "on the snow".

Would it be wrong to say, "Yesterday we had a lovely snow day"?

In an earlier lesson un día hermoso was a nice day. Now it's a lovely day. A nice day and a lovely day is pretty close to the same thing in the US of A and in most parts of Georgia.

Trust me, nobody ever spent a "lovely day IN the snow", should be ON.

When I played IN the snow as a child, I spent a day IN the snow. I've never heard anyone say ON the snow that I can remember.

Whether or not I skied has nothing to do with the fact that the sentence sounds natural to English speakers.

And no, I never skied in my backyard while playing in the snow.

While I'm a fan of in the snow, and i find it the most common translation, my wife the skier suggests that on the snow might be appropriate for ski resort discourse.
