You have not specified whether the given statement is a sentence, the negation of which was provided by Damon. If it is a proposition, which would have been stated as follows:

*If it snows, then it is cold.*

The negation of the above proposition would be:

*If it is not cold, it is not snowing.*

A snowy day is cold.

Well, if it is in logic form then

Hypothesis: If snowy, then cold.

Converse: If cold, then snowy. (maybe)

Inverse: If not snowy, then not cold. (maybe)

Contrapositive: If not cold, then not snowy. (true if hypothesis is true)
