[linux-lvm] Newb: discard COW changes to snapshot?

I would like to be able to make "sandbox" changes to a medium size
(200 GB) file system.  Is there any way to take a snapshot, make the
changes, and then have the option to throw away all the copy-on-write
changes, and leave the filesystem as it was when the snapshot was

Are the changes written back when snapshot volume is 'lvermove'ed?  Is
there some option to disable that?
