Here's something toddlers like....get one of those "flying saucer sleds" and a bungee cord (the truck kind, the real heavy black ones). Loop the cord through the little nail hole in the edge of the saucer and let your child sit in it. Then pull him around. Powdery snow is fine for this activity.

Also, get a "gaiter." They are made of fleece. You want an adjustable one. Put it around your child's neck over the jacket and hat and pull it up so only eyes are showing. This will help with the snow-in-the-face thing.
