They are smart enough to make a warm nest usually in shallow burrows then the snow cover is like an igloo. They share their nest with a few others and huddle together to keep warm.
They are a bit protected from wind and water, the harsher elements of winters.
They manage survival. A sad part of nature is they often breed and become cannibalistic, feeding on offspring or elders in poor health. What few insects are around are dormant too, but they can find those under rocks by smelling.
Not always good, because fox can hear their activity and smell them under a lighter snow pack.

Snow is a good insulator and easy to work with. This allows the mice to have a nice hole in the snow warmed by their own body heat. Yay, mammals.
