Location of the mouth of the Snow River in Alaska

The Snow River is a 28-mile (45 km) tributary of Kenai Lake in the U.S. state of Alaska.[2] Beginning in the Chugach Mountains of the Kenai Peninsula, it flows southwest through Chugach National Forest to near Primrose at the southern inlet of the lake.[3] The river mouth is about 12 miles (19 km) northeast of Seward.[2] Along its final reaches, the river intersects the Iditarod Trail and passes under the Seward Highway.[3]
