Awaiting the Blizzard coming into Michigan tonight and looking forward to some great snow pics after it blows through tomorrow. What is the primary difference between using the Snow Scene mode vs. manually stepping up the exposure for snow ?

According to the manual (Page 43), the built-in flash and auto-assist illuminator are turned off. There is no mention of exposure change.
The D7000 Digital Field Guide by Thomas (page 33) says that the camera many underexpose sand and snow, and the the beach/snow scene mode adds some exposure compensation to ensure that the sand/snow appears to be gleaming white.
