The Snow Forts opened on September 12, 2005, a few weeks into the beta testing of Club Penguin. In November 2005, puffles were first spotted here. A few weeks later, on December 14, 2005, Puffle Roundup was playable from here, to gather the furry creatures. On February 24, 2006, it was moved from the Snow Forts to the Plaza (and then shortly after, the Pet Shop).
On February 23, 2007, the Clock Tower was added, along with a small sign next to it explaining PST. Additionally, ever since the Penguin Games ended on August 26, 2008, the Stadium could be seen in the distance whenever it was opened, as was also the case with the Ice Rink.
The room was renovated on December 6, 2012. The room received a major graphical update, although not much else changed. The two snow forts became bigger, and nearby areas; the Town, Plaza, and mountain range, were made visible.
