Swedish for “snowflake”, SNöFLINGA is a community-sponsored festival that takes place in and around Butte during the winter months. A group of winter enthusiasts from Butte got together in November 2015 to brainstorm ways to encourage recreation in the community during the winter months. In 2016, SNöFLINGA came to life. What started in 2016 as a small winter festival with a few outdoor activities has expanded to include over 18 activities across 8 different venues.
The Three-day event is run by the Butte Community Fitness Foundation (BCFF) with generous support from business sponsors, grant sponsors, community volunteers, and a mainly volunteer-powered festival organizing team.
SNöFLINGA is available to people of all ages. Grab the kids and bundle up for an unforgettable weekend. Check out the miles of groomed cross country ski trails at Homestake Lodge, the Moulton, and Mt. Haggin Nordic Areas.
Have you ever wanted to ride your bike in the snow? Or curl like an Olympian? You can learn and participate in several winter activities throughout the weekend. Did you know Thompson Park bike trails are groomed for Fat Biking?
Bring your friends and come play at Stodden Park, explore our plowed walking trails, and check out all of our other great venues like the Community Ice Rink!
Come see the fun side of winter! All of our activities are designed to be fun. Winter is the longest season in Montana so why not find as many ways as possible to enjoy it?
