Sorry - no idea!

These look like 4 small paws prints, which would suggest to me a small mammal,such as mouse/vole/stoat/weasel, but I'm not certain at all!

A scale would be useful, unfortunately these are too degraded to be certain.

However, if these are largeish then I would suggest rabbit or hare (depending on size) from the gait. The print consists of two small prints in the centre and two long prints on the outside. This would fit with rabbit or hare. On the other hand, if they are very small then wood/yellow-necked mice can make similar prints when jumping through snow.
