Crater Rock in its center. The striated snowy area directly downhill from Crater Rock is the so-called "Palmer Glacier," though with no bergschrund, I'm not convinced this is actually a glacier rather than an ice field. Palmer is the only site in North America that offers year-round skiing (hence the striations), though I've heard conditions can get pretty awful before the fall snows start falling.
