A “snowcano” is a natural phenomonon that occurs near the beach (at least of Lake Ontario) in winter. At the edge of the shore the water pushes up through cracks in the ice and makes frozen columns, which in turn get covered in snow. So you get these cones of snow, sometimes with water spuming out of the top like a little volcano.
