It does not look like snow mold but rather like voles have been having a party under the snow. It looks like the grass has been piled up in spots and bare paths in others. Snow mold flattens grass and it usually is gray. Here is some information on vole damage: http://www3.extension.umn.edu/local/article/snow-melt-reveals-lawn-damage-0 and a link on snow mold: http://www3.extension.umn.edu/local/clay/garden/article/snow-mold-home-lawns
