Achieving the look of snow with sunlight on it

I'm doing some landscapes of mountains needing bright sunlight on snow atop the peaks but dead white isn't going to reflect light for that glistening effect.

What's it take to get that look?

Thanks in advance.

Hard to say without a photo reference.
But often the difference between a warm, very slightly peachy white and a cooler grayer white creates the right effect--so hue/lum/sat could work...
