Snowmane accompanied Théoden to the Battle of the Hornburg, and was riden on the final charge out of the fortress. At the battle of the Pelennor, however, Snowmane was pierced by a black dart, causing him to fall and crush Théoden beneath him. He was buried with honour on the field of battle; his grave, known as Snowmane's Howe, bore the inscription:
Faithful servant yet master's bane
Lightfoot's foal, swift Snowmane.
-- The Return of the King: "The Battle of the Pelennor Fields," p. 120
