There aren't several Inuit terms for snow.
Anthropologist Franz Boas introduced another misconception of Inuit culture throughout the 19th century. Boas was given the chance to spend some time with the Inuit in order to understand more about them, and he noted that they frequently refer to snow. The idea that the Inuit can create hundreds of sentences out of snow, however, stems from an incorrect understanding of their sentence structure. Inuk people can express something with just one word, such as aqilokoq, which encompasses the complete phrase "softly falling snow," as opposed to needing numerous words to do so. Though the Inuit have several expressions to describe various meteorological conditions, only three root words are thought to really imply snow
