Garth E. Snow (born July 28, 1969) is an American retired professional ice hockey goaltender and is currently the general manager for the New York Islanders of the National Hockey League.

Snow was drafted by the Quebec Nordiques out of Mount Saint Charles Academy in the sixth round of the 1987 NHL Entry Draft. He went straight to the University of Maine for four years and for three straight years led the NCAA in wins. After helping lead the school to a 42–1–2 record and the NCAA Championship in 1993, he was named to the All-Tournament team. After spending the majority of 1993–94 playing for the United States National Team which included playing in the 1994 Winter Olympics, he turned to his professional career, seeing his first NHL action in five games for the Nordiques.

Snow recorded 32 wins in 62 games for the Cornwall Aces of the AHL during 1994–95. After the Quebec franchise relocated to Colorado, Snow was traded to the Philadelphia Flyers for two draft picks during the off-season. Garth would back up veteran Ron Hextall for over two seasons and would alternate with Hextall during the Flyers' run to the Stanley Cup Finals in 1997, most notably playing in Game 2 of the Finals. Near the trade deadline in 1997–98, he was traded to the Vancouver Canucks for Sean Burke.
