Frosty is the youngest of two large volcanic structures of the Cold Bay volcanic complex, about 15 km SW of Cold Bay at the tip of the Alaska Peninsula. Frosty Peak was constructed within the southernmost of two coalescing craters during the late-Pleistocene to Holocene, and forms the high point of the volcanic complex.
