The snow block is a decorative block used to spawn the snow golem.


When mined with a shovel or shears, the snow block will drop itself. It is broken the fastest when using a shovel. Otherwise, it drops nothing.


While it is snowing, when a snow flake comes into contact with a block, if it is an air block or snow and it has solid blocks below it and on either side, there is a 1/20 chance of a snow block being generated.


The snow block is crafted using four snow balls.

Snow Golem

When a pumpkin is placed onto two snow blocks on top of each other, it will spawn a snow golem.

Crafting Ingredient

The snow block can be used to craft ice, which can otherwise only be obtained as an item by mining ice with a pickaxe enchanted with silk touch.
