These features only exist in outdated versions of Minecraft.
Tundras were a cold biome, which existed in the game prior to the Adventure Update.
Snowy, barren terrain with very few trees. The occasional trees do exist, though very rarely. Ice can be found over water. Snow is a common weather in tundras. It generates when the temperature is below 50% and the rainfall is less than 20%.
In Beta 1.8, Notch also said that this biome would be left out until Beta 1.9. This is because snow was causing problems with the new biome generator.
