Polar Peak was a location in Fortnite: Battle Royale. It is the iceberg that collided with the map and added snow to the southwest corner of the map at the beginning of Season 7. It is in the south-western corner of the map. You can see Polar Peak from any part of the map since it is so large.

On January 19, 2019, the mysterious floating ice orb that contained The Ice King had broke, fully revealing The Ice King. The Ice King then used a giant projection of himself, his icy powers, and some remaining fragments of Kevin The Cube to cover the map in snow. Ice Shards and the Ice Legion had then begin to appear on the island. This was later known as the Ice Storm event.

On May 4th, 2019, Polar Peak was damaged and a giant crack appeared on it, due to the Volcano Eruption.

During Week 2 of Season 9, the bottom of the iceberg melted, revealing a small space. In that small space, wind would constantly blow out, pushing nearby players back.

On May 28, 2019, the ice near the bottom of the iceberg melted even more, this time becoming translucent and revealing a giant eye.

On June 6, 2019, the monster under Polar Peak emerged, destroying parts of the kingdom and taking out a large chunk from the edge of the iceberg carrying the castle. The monster itself made giant footprints around the snow biome, which lead to the sea. It could occasionally be found swimming around the island with the castle on its back.

During The Final Showdown, the castle was officially destroyed by one of the Mecha's missiles.

Like all other POIs on the old map, the location was removed from the game during "The End" live event.
