SnowHorn Wastes is a frozen tundra located on Dinosaur Planet in Star Fox Adventures.


Home to the Mammoth tribe called the SnowHorns, this bitter landscape is dominated by freezing, ice-ridden rivers, subzero temperatures, and a consistent dry atmosphere along with an endless snowfall year round. The land was possibly close by to DarkIce Mines before it drifted off when General Scales took the SpellStone back to the sacred land. Good as the location's name, Snowtrooper SharpClaw soldiers and the deadly little burrowing pests Snipluks and Snaplaks hardly make this location a winter wonderland.


Plight of Sauria

Fox McCloud first arrives in SnowHorn Wastes after he races a duo of SharpClaw down the slopes of Ice Mountain. At the end of the pursuit, he less-than-gracefully plummets into the Hot Spring where he gets acquainted with Prince Tricky. Progressing through the Wastes, Fox learns to maintain authoritative balance and patience between himself and the prince in order to return him to his mother, the Queen EarthWalker. Unearthing Alpine Roots, collecting GrubTubs, and bribing the BribeClaw into allowing them passage to ThornTail Hollow were a few of the challenges looming within SnowHorn Wastes for Fox and Tricky.

Fox returns to the Wastes several times throughout his quest. He liberates Garunda Te, the DarkIce Mines GateKeeper, and returns the SnowHorn Artifact, stolen by the ShopKeeper, to the silver-furred SnowHorn in order to pass his test to gain access to the fourth Krazoa Spirit.
