Explanation:

(compositing) period of show cover

I found about 65,000 examples with “snow cover” (like “snow cover data”, “snow cover update”, etc), so this common term is not a problem. As far as the Russian “period formirovaniya” is concerned, I would use “compositing period”, which is the exact English match, or just the word “period” alone. If the exact period of time is available, I would use a word like “during”, ”over”, “from…to…”, etc. See some examples of how this idea is handled in English:

Hope that this helps.

Explanation:
Well, to translate your phrase you could use the following:
"(the) period (time) of formation of snow cover"
At least I used something in translating a very scinetific article realted to glacial phenomena:)
