Unsurprisingly, most of the White Walker (The Others) abilities revolve around ice and cold.

  • Create swords and other items from ice (seen in show):

Shaw: Do you know what substance an Other sword is made from.

Martin: Ice. But not like regular old ice. The Others can do things with ice that we can't imagine and make substances of it.

"Interview with the Dragon" 2003 Robert Shaw

  • Raise dead humans and animals as wights (seen in show, unclear if all White Walkers have this power or just the Night's King)

  • Travel without leaving a trace in the snow (unclear if this is portrayed in the show)

  • "Bring the cold with them" / white mist (seen in show)

  • Speech, not exactly a "power", but as seen in the show it might just be thought of as screeching.

The Other said something in a language that Will did not know; his voice was like the cracking of ice on a winter lake, and the words were mocking. - A Game of Thrones, Prologue
