Some days it feels like there only so many ways to entertain yourself in the wake of a classic Montana snowstorm. The temptation to romp in a foot of fresh powder seems much less novel and exciting as the winter season drags on. We’re often filled with dread at thought of shoveling snow, chipping ice, or running late because we didn’t give ourselves enough time to scrape our cars. However, there are still many fun and inexpensive ways to enjoy the area during its colder season. Butte’s recent hosting of SnoFlinga, Montana’s festival celebrating winter, both reminded me and introduced me to many of these seasonal activities worth taking a study break for.
