"Snow Area" is a theme from Kirby: Squeak Squad that plays in Ice Island - Stage 2.
Kirby navigates the snowy area.
"Snow Area" is a calm yet poignant theme in C major and 4/4. It starts off with a simple C-G-C accompaniment, as well as a rhythmically loose clarinet double dominant solo that immediately showcases the music's tonal instability. The string melody features a rising sequence of falling major triads, played twice. The first time it soon returns to its original height, while the second features a faint counterpoint in the likes of the intro, and the melody reaches G major. The nostalgic second section features a desending G minor scale-like synth passage similar to the fourth section of "Prism Plains". In its development it briefly reaches back up before ultimately descending to D minor. The development continues with frequent modulations before winding up at a prolonged dominant to C major. The track loops from the first section.
