Little memory lane trip back to the place I where I lived between '97 and '99 while my Dad worked for SEB (one of Sweden's biggest banks). Some highlights (posting this from my hotel room so will be posting more in the next two days) - will do some PP when I get back home, I know the whitebalance on some of them is a bit off:

I like the first sunset image, nice composition :)

As you may know already, your white balance issues are caused by the large areas of snow reflecting the sun - this almost always confuses the camera's metering system if you leave it in auto mode.

It can be tricky to correct this afterwards, often because there just isn't enough information in the underexposed areas to bring out. A selective adjustment in levels and /or curves could work but avoid applying to the whole image un-selectively - in trying to rescue the underexposed areas you may 'blow' out' the lighter areas.

It's handy to take these sorts of pictures in RAW as you get a lot more scope to rescue underexposed/ overexposed areas than jpeg can offer. With snow scenes adding +1 exposure compensation to what your camera thinks should get you in the ballpark of what you want when taking the picture - and you've always got the option of using exposure bracketing and picking out the best one when you get home :)
