The ruins of Fort Snowhawk circa 4E 201

Snowhawk was a city in west-central Skyrim, contemporary with the Imperial Simulacrum.[1] A small settlement was located just outside the city circa 3E 433.[2]

By 4E 201, the city had been abandoned and all that remained were the ruins of Fort Snowhawk. It had been taken over by a band of necromancers. During the Stormcloak Rebellion, the fort served as a point of contention between the Imperial Legion and the Stormcloaks, with both sides struggling for control.[3]


  • Arena was originally conceived as a fighting game featuring a tournament that took the player to each of Tamriel's cities to challenge different gladiatorial teams. According to a file from that stage of development left behind in the final game, Snowhawk's gladiatorial team would have been called "the Frost Demons".[UOL 1]
