Queen Snowfall is the current IceWing queen who appears in Winter Turning and Darkness of Dragons. She is the cousin of Winter, Icicle, and Hailstorm, and is Queen Glacier's daughter. Snowfall is sarcastic, condescending, and smug, and she seems to be jealous of anyone else who is higher than her in the IceWing Rankings. Winter notes her to be "abundantly blessed with mean smugness," meaning that he finds her very annoying and that he strongly dislikes her. She becomes queen in the book Darkness of Dragons and appears to be a bit more mature. She became furious as Queen Glacier died and wanted war with the NightWings.
While Winter scans the rankings of the dragons in the First Circle, he notes that Snowfall has moved to the top position on the dragonet side, in front of Lynx, who was in second. When Winter is moved to take her spot, she shoots him a glare. When the IceWing dragonets are dismissed, Snowfall stays to congratulate him sarcastically and to stare at the rankings, along with Hailstorm, "as if she could reshape them with the sheer force of her eyeballs," clearly meaning that she was upset about the uprising.
When Darkstalker enchants a scroll to tell news of the IceWings, it was revealed that Queen Glacier is dead, Snowfall becomes new queen, and she brings the entire IceWing army to Jade Mountain to fight the newly super-powered NightWings.
Snowfall, Hailstorm, and Narwhal are shown demanding the Jade Mountain staff to tell them where Darkstalker is, which they didn't know. Winter shows up and she is shocked, looking at Hailstorm as if expecting him to disappear, then demanding to know how Winter is alive. Winter exclaims that it's not important and begins helping his friends attempt to convince her not to fight the NightWings. Before she can consider, NightWing scouts with gifts of speed appear and begin attacking, throwing the discussion away and officially beginning a battle. Narwhal is killed while blocking the NightWings from her, but Snowfall keeps relatively calm throughout the battle and launches frostbreath attacks of her own. She was later teleported back to the Ice Kingdom along with the other IceWings, due to Anemone's spell.

"Oh, how funny, I would have thought you'd want him to."
