Multiple scattering of laser beams in scattering media can be easy expressed through Greens function of the radiative transfer equation. Therefore numerical calculations of Greens functions are more advisable in comparison with calculations of optical signal for some concrete experimental schemes. In this paper, Green's function for snowfalls is calculated with the standard Monte -Carlo code. A simplest model for the phase function of a snowflake is used. The angular and spatial divergence of radiation due to multiple scattering versus optical depths and particle sizes in snowfalls are discussed.
