Winter snows drape Buldir, the westernmost Quaternary volcanic center of the 2500-km-long Aleutian arc. The older Buldir volcano lies at the center of the island and the younger East Cape volcano forms the NE portion. The age of the most recent eruptions is not known precisely, but has been estimated to be late Pleistocene or Holocene.
