Well first entry in a long time. Not really taken for this challenge but why not try.

Had to do two raw conversions for white balance fixes and then combined some contrast fixes and high pass sharpening.

Horizon look off to me.

Interesting color in contrast to the snow, this is one of those scenes where a split neutral density filter would be nice to allow more exposure on the snow but still save the exposure on the sky

Was the tilt intentional? Personally I think horizons should be horizontal. Also, the point of light mid left is distracting and is begging to be cloned out.

No doubt this is a great sky and in that part of the image you have served it well, but for me, the other stuff detracts from that central focus.
