Snow is the second waycastle defending the Eyrie, the seat of House Arryn, and the third line of castle's defense following the Gates of the Moon and Stone.[1]


The trail to Snow is steeper than that of Stone. It consists of a single fortified tower, a timber keep, and a stable placed behind a low wall of unmortared rock. It is nestled into the Giant's Lance so as to command the entire pathway from Stone to Snow. The trail then continues up the mountain to Sky.[1]
