Help. Beautiful fall lawn turned ugly over winter

I slice seeded my lawn in early fall of last year, got about 6 cuts in to mature and this is what it looked like before applying Scotts winterguard (safe for new lawns)


But the winter turned my lawn into this.


I've applied pelletized lime & Scotts Turf Builder with crabgrass preventer. I checked for grubs but did not find any. Local hardware store suggested Snow Mold. Are there any treatments to bring my grass back to its original beauty?

So there's not much that can be done now besides rake and try to dry the areas? Anyone experience snow mold and their grass return to normal?
