Disambig.png This article is about the Highlands snow block. For the layer form, see Highlands Snow Layer.

Highlands Snow is a full snow block found at the tops of mountains in Arctic Peaks.


Highlands Snow requires a shovel to be mined, in which case it will drop snowballs. When mined without a shovel, it will drop nothing. If Highlands Snow is mined with a Silk Touch enchanted shovel, it will drop itself.
