Currently you get nothing extra on a snow hill.

Clarification
Yields from city center tile when settling are calculated as follows, in this order:
1. Start with the base yields from the tile, including any increase from resources on the tile.
2. If Food is less than 2, it is set to 2.
3. If Production is less than 1, it is set to 1.
4. Add +1 Food to cities on flatlands or mountains that have access to fresh water.
5. Add +1 Gold to cities on flatlands or mountains that have no access to fresh water.
6. Add +1 Production to cities on mountains that have no access to fresh water.

proposing to make snow hills give 1 if fresh water or 1 if no fresh water, same as flat snow and mountains

I would make it coincide with hill.

that would be ok too. I suggested making it same as flat because snow hills don't have production like regular hills do. though you can still build mines, so either works

Making it the same as hill means you don't need to have another line or exception starting how it works specifically for snow hills.

Hills never added yields to a city. max(1, 2) is 2 so hill cities have 2
Snow hills have 0 yields so snow hill cities only have 2
Adding 1 to hill cities means 3 on regular hill cities.

Why is hills the only one that includes the yield of the tile beneath, and is this what should be changed?

You get MINIMUM 2 1 in the city.

All terrains on flat plot don't have yields exceeding this (unless there's a resource). All hills have 2 except snow ones, so they get +1 .

So my proposal would require that the minimum turn into into "exactly ", then give hills +1 like flat gives +1 [yield]?

You can propose to change the base city yields to exactly 2 1 , then add:
1 to hills
(else) 1 to fresh water
(else) 1 to others
Then add the resource yields on top.

It'll be different for resources and snow hills, but fairer I guess?

I looked into the code to see how the yield was calculated and added this correction to the inaccurate info in OP.

oh, I forgot about mountains. since that's Inca only
