When Aaron Cross returns to the cabin to survey the wreckage (and presumably gather any useful supplies and "chems" he might find), he scratches through the snow until he reaches a solid surface and gives-up in apparent exasperation.

What surface did he scratch down to that caused him to stop digging further?

He doesn't stop digging because he ran into something, he stops digging because he realizes it is a lost cause to look for the chems. As he is digging you see what's left of the chems in the snow, both blues and greens. You also notice there aren't any intact enough to salvage. Later in the movie when you see when he goes to take some chems, there are only fragments of one. I would assume this what is left of what he salvaged from the wrecked cabin. Other than the realization, there is nothing there which would make him stop digging.

This is an error in the movie. Since the blue and green snow are clearly melted chems, scooping up the blue snow in it's entirety would give him a liquid source of his meds. Better than nothing. He's too smart to not take that with him to sustain his needs until he can find more...
