Kolomaq, the Beast of the Snows, is one of the Great Beasts. He was the most savage of the Beasts and was imprisoned in the Earth by Tundra, his mortal enemy. He was finally set free when industrial mining shattered the mystical barrier. Snowbird faced him alone and tricked him into sealing himself into the Earth. She used his own power against him by sending forth a storm of a million winters, which ripped apart the landscape, thus trapping him. He appeared again when summoned by Pestilence to battle against Alpha Flight, but was ultimately sent back to the Realm of the Beasts by Talisman.
