Snow Pillow Peak - NE face
Located between Rogers and Gowan Creeks, 14.7km west of Nahatlatch Peak. A bulky, massive summit with a fairly soft and level snowfield on the top. The steep and vegetated northeast face rises over 3000' from valley bottom. The top of the actual summit has a small snowfield marked on 1:50,000 map. The top is rounded, and it looks like there is a fairly large area up there. On BC Basemap also shows a large area above the 2220 contour.

Name Notes: The name refers to the unusual snow coverage on the soft, rounded summit of an otherwise rugged peak.
