How many words do Eskimos actually have for snow?

Actually, Eskimos (also known as Inuit) don’t have a very large amount of words for snow. They actually have a rather normal amount of words for snow compared to world languages. Inuit languages are agglutinative so “words” are just combinations of different elements, but the number of elements relating to snow is similar to other languages.
