Yukigakure (雪隠れの里, Yukigakure no Sato; Literally meaning "Village Hidden in the Snow") is located in the Land of Snow and featured in the first Naruto movie. Its ninja apparently specialise in manipulating pre-existing ice. In the movie, the ninja from this village had a special "chakra armour" which protected them from most attacks while amplifying the user's abilities, and their techniques arsenal typically used ice in the forms of various animals. At the end of the movie, the snow is subsequently melted and the country is renamed the Land of Spring. It is unknown what happens to the village.
