Snow pigeons measure from 31 to 32 cm (12.2–13.4 in) in lenght. Their backs are brownish grey with a white patch on the lower back. They have pale gray wings with three brown bars. Their black tails have a clear white band in the middle which narrows and curve forward to reach the tip of outermost tail features. Young birds have narrow pale buff margins to the feathers of the upper parts and wings. The white of the underparts is sullied with buff.
