Is there a way in QGIS to connect to a Snowflake cloud data warehouse using ODBC, or other? I would like to access this data storage to natively create spatial content by accessing the WKT, Geography, etc. Or by creating an X,Y using the lat/longs stored in the table.

It is possible to connect QGIS to Snowflake using an ODBC connection as long as your Snowflake tables follow the OGR naming convention i.e. you would need to have a table called GEOMETRY_COLUMNS that indicates the names of tables that contain geospatial data, and the format of those data.
