Interesting idea - the iron in the snow brings in a performance aspect, which adds to its one-of-a-kind-ness. Also, the fact that it was a weather-permitting action shows both the spontaneity or planned out nature of the act. but it's not a print technically, but there is a technical process involved...so I agree with rani on monolandscaping.

Monoprints? No... Paintings? Nope... Drawings?... Yeah. Drawings.

I think these are sculpture pieces, not monoprints. By altering a 3d material with other 3d materials and displaying final pieces as 3d objects, they're not 2d monos.
