Snowy Mountain volcano lies 15 km NE of Mount Katmai. An ice-topped Holocene lava dome on the central skyline partly fills an ice-mantled scar that formed as a result of edifice collapse of the NE slope of the NE Snowy edifice. The true summit (Peak 7090) lies just behind the dome to its right. The Serpent Tongue glacier flows from the amphitheater.
