Snow is an enemy and an optional boss from Final Fantasy VII. To obtain the Alexander Summon Materia, the player must examine the hot spring in the Great Glacier and then talk to Snow in the easternmost cave in the glacier to start a fight. Losing this fight does not cause a Game Over, and instead Snow will say
Hah, just remember your place! before the player is transported to Holzoff's house at the base of Gaea's Cliff with 1 HP.
Snow is also fought as a random encounter in the area and in the fifth round of the Battle Square after the player acquires the Highwind and Cloud Strife rejoins the party. When fought on the Battle Square its stats are enhanced with double the normal HP and its Attack and Magic Attack are increased by 25%.
It is possible to get a preemptive attack on Snow even as a boss because there are random battles in the room she is fought in.

Snow keeps her regular random encounter stats during her "boss fight". She uses Ice attacks and Fascination, an attack that always causes Confusion on one character. Her Ice2 spell is used as a counter-attack only. The Fire element is effective here, and Fire2 and Beta are powerful against her. The player can steal the rare Circlet from her.
- Snow creature may be based on the Yuki-onna (雪女?, lit. snow woman) from Japanese mythology. The Yuki-onna is an apparition of a woman, which appears on snowy mountains. The creature's doings vary from tale to tale; in some renditions it helps lost travelers, but in others, it lures them away and freezes them.
- The field model of Snow is that of a normal woman but uses graphic filters to color it blue/purple.
