Snowy the Columbian Mammoth


She's a young Columbian mammoth, and the first fossil found by a bulldozer operator in fall 2010. Her name, Snowy, is to honor Snowmass Village, her hometown. Now she lives at the Museum and loves to talk about what it was like growing up in the Ice Age.

If you'd like to take Snowy home, visit the Museum Shop, where you'll find her adorable plush toy on sale now. All proceeds from the Snowy product to go fund the science, research, and educations of the Snowmastodon Project™.
