We demonstrate that Terrestrial Laser Scanner (TLS) return signals can be used to accurately map the snow cover extent over a glacier. A rule-based classification, employing intensity, surface roughness and an associated optical image, achieves classification accuracy of 68–100%. Snow cover extent is valuable information for glacier surface energy balance models, which are sensitive to the glacier surface condition; however, as the TLS intensity signal shows no meaningful relationship with surface or bulk snow density, the snow mass remains elusive.
