Aversion to Fire. If the yeti takes fire damage, it has disadvantage on attack rolls and ability checks until the end of its next turn.

Keen Smell. The yeti has advantage on Perception checks that rely on smell.

Maneuvers. The yeti uses maneuvers (maneuver save Difficulty 14). It has 6 stamina dice which are d8s, a dice limit of 1, regains all expended stamina dice when it finishes a long rest, and regains half its total stamina dice when it finishes a short rest. It knows the following maneuvers:

1 stamina die: blood in the water, fearsome beast, grapple, spring attack, swipe, tear flesh

Snow Camouflage. The yeti has advantage on Stealth checks made to avoid notice in snowy terrain.

Actions (3)

Claw (2/turn). Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit. Hit: 7 (1d6 + 4) slashing damage plus 3 (1d6) cold damage.

Chilling Gaze (Recharge 5–6). One creature that the yeti can see and it can see the yeti within 5 meters of it must succeed on a Difficulty 13 Fortitude saving throw against or take 4 (1d8) cold damage and be stunned for 1 minute, unless it is immune to cold damage. On a success, a creature takes half as much damage and isn’t stunned. The target can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success. If the target’s saving throw is successful, or if the effect ends on it, the target is immune to the yeti’s gaze for 1 hour.
