Since the map of the game is massive, it has different zones that all require a different level so that you won’t have a hard time against enemies. One such zone is the snow area – or the Consecrated Snowfield. If you are curious about how to get to the snow area in Elden Ring, worry not because we’ve got you covered. 

To get to the snow area, you must defeat Morgot in Leyndell, the Royal Captial, and collect the Rold Medalion. Use the medallion on the Grand Lift of Rold to ascend to the snow area and continue your adventure there.

However, if you want to know more about the Consecrated Snowfield and what you can expect there, continue reading to find out. We will also talk about how you can easily get there as well. With that said, let’s dive right in and find out how to get to the snow area in Elden Ring.

If you wish to progress to this area without fighting Malenia, you can simply defeat Morgot, The Omen King, and get access to the Rold Medallion. To get the item, you must rest and talk to Melinayour maiden – at the Site of Grace on the battlefield. After that, you can head over to the Grand Lift of Rold and ascend to this area.

However, there is another – secret – way in which you can enter this area. To enter the secret area and fight Malenia, you need to gather the two parts of the Haligtree Secret Medallion.

After you have the medallion, you can either use the D-pad to get a unique option called “Hoist secret medallion”. Use this to enter a cutscene where your character uses the Haligtree Medallion. After the cutscene, you will enter the Hidden Path of the Haligtree.

Using the medallion will allow you to reach Miquella’s Haligtree. Here, you can fight the optional boss Malenia. If you do not know where the lift is found, you need to head to the Forbidden Lands section which is east of Leyndell.

What is the Snow Area

Players need to go to this place after conquering Leyndell, the Royal Captial. Since the game doesn’t outright tell you that you need to go here, some players often get confused.

This area has tons of snow, blizzards, and low visibility. However, keep in mind that this entire section is completely optional. You do not have to go here to finish the game. However, if you wish to fight every boss in the game or want to explore all the areas, then you definitely don’t want to miss this. 

In the Consecrated Snowfield, you can expect to fight bosses such as the Putrid Tree Spirit, Putrid Grave Warden Duelist, and the Crusader Misbegotten just to name a few. Plus, if you wish to fight the notorious Malenia, Blade of Miquella, you need to go through this area. 


And there you have it; that’s everything you need to know about how to get to the snow area in Elden Ring. If you want to fight the strongest boss in the game, make sure that you get to this area and try your luck. This area features tons of strong enemies, so, it’s better if you level up before.
