Ice Guide : Southcentral : Kenai Peninsula : Snow River

Snow River

Located on the Kenai Peninsula approximately 12 miles north of Seward, this wide drainage offers exciting approaches and challenging ice. Snow machines are recommended due to the length of the drainage. However, skiing is doable but watch out for the open water. The majority of known routes exist about 5 miles back up the South Fork of the Snow River.

One more thing, rumor has it there are still plenty of first ascents to be had. Enjoy!

Alert: Be aware that certain areas in the Snow River basin are off limits to motorized use. Be sure to check trails and access rights before venturing into the area.
