I second what others have said about tux racer, however planetpenguin 
racer is a more up to date version and is in the Ubuntu repositories. 
Supertux is a mario type platform game with a snowy theme. Tuxtype is a 
typing tutor type game also with a snowy theme and yet another snow 
themed game is frozen bubble. There are also games called snowballz 
(which I havent tried) and Icebreaker (which is quite basic).

One other thing to install is xsnow. It's not a game but displays 
snowflakes and santa on your background. Perfect for Christmas :)
