Snow does not make any sound. When you are outside on a snowy day, or when there is a lot of snow on the ground, what sounds are in the air seem to be dampened somewhat because the snow, being soft, tends to absorb the sound waves. But the actual snowflakes, being tiny and wet, do not impact anything or each other with enough force to set up sound-vibrations, thus creating any sound waves. And, without sound waves, there can be no sound. Have you ever heard the famous saying, if a tree falls in the forest and there is no one there to hear it, is sound created? Well, of course sound is created. It makes no difference if a sound is actually heard by someone for it to exist.

Is the creaking sound produced by walking on snow is most common on old snow?

It is a crunching noise not a creaking sound. This noise occurs when walking/stepping on lying snow/ice because your weight is causing the snow/ice to compact itself therefore making a sound. Also I do not know what you mean by 'old snow'. Hope this helped, :) :L
