I've observed the same in last few years. Dec-Feb snowfall is heavy but only during a WD. It accumulates and stays for a few days even if sunny.

Mid March - May, there is light snowfall almost every afternoon: very soft, watery snow that melts in one hour of sun. It's not very beautiful like winter snowfall. Seems just like rain but is actually snow. Even flakes aren't that beautiful and perfectly shaped like winter snow.
Learning to be silent.

If there is heavy snowfall in jan / feb, are roads blocked? are there risks involved if one wants to travel during this season.

It depends on the route you're desiring to take. Not all places in the Himalaya get equal quantity of snow. (assuming your question is about that region.)

Was there 5 days ago. No snow, nothing. Occasional rain and a bit of hail.
