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)
