Hi, Carlos,

Hello,

It (had been snowing/ had snowed) for a while before we left.

Is it had been snowing? Why?

Grammatically speaking, both are correct. In this case, in our exams, the model answer always goes with the past perfect progressive because the exam makers think that the focus here is on either the activity or the period of time, not on the possible effects of (just) finishing the action.
