hey .. yep.. I saw what you meant by "bluish" lol..

Yes, you can fix this in photoshop..
I tried it on one of your pict. took me less than 2 min to fix it!

open your layer palette, and click on the layer adjustment icone at th
bottom.. choose color balance..
basically since there's too much blue in your pict you would have t
balance your color to the oposite of blue or cyan (wich is blue)..

here's the values I worked out.. for this pict..
shadow +35,+5,-61
midtones +48, -8, -100
highlights +84, +11, -52
checked preserve luminosity

then to finish it off. you can use the "level" adjustment layer t
contrast your pict more (or the brightness, contrast).. (I prefe
level)..

alright so your on your own now.. you'll have to work with it to full
understand how it works..
good luck..
any question keep me posted!

ps. nice pict!.

I got very good results on all four of your pictures, do the following...

Create a target folder. In photoshop, open one of your pictures. In the
window menu, make sure Actions is checked. Go to the bottom of the Actions
window click the Create new action icon. Make a name for the action and
click Record. Now Go to Adjustments under the Image menu, and click Auto
Levels. Then go to Adjustments again under the Image menu, and click Auto
Color. Then go to File, Save As... and save it in your target folder the way
you want all the pictures saved, Close the image, then click the Stop button
in the Actions window. Next, go to File, Automation, and click on Batch...
In the Play section, select the action you just created. Select Folder for
Source, and choose the folder that contains all your pictures. Select Folder
for Destination, and choose your target folder. Put a check beside override
Action "Save As" Commands, then click OK. If you followed all the steps, all
your adjusted pictures should end up in your target folder.

These guys have already helped you fix your pictures, but within you
camera there is a setting for specifically shooting images in the snow
Digi cameras cant use autofocus correctly in such high lightin
situations. Just look through your different program modes for takin
pictures. On my Sony the icon is a little snow man. Good luck next tim
around
