There is something special about ringing in New Year’s Eve in the Butte.  The cozy venues, snow covered paradise, and joyous mood around town make this a memorable evening. Need a place to stay for NYE? The Nordic Inn has specials, free parking, and is conveniently located on the mountain.

CBMR Torchlight Parade

This party is huge! The skiers (holding torches) and fireworks can be seen from nearly anywhere in the vicinity, but feel free to check out the party going on at Butte 66 (the BEST view). Starting around 5:30 CBMR will have live music and drink specials all night long!

Magic Meadows Yurt Party

If cross-country skiing (or snowshoeing) to your party in the middle of the woods sounds like your cup of tea, don’t miss this memorable event.  Taking place at a yurt located a couple miles up the Slate River valley, a $195 cover includes trail passes, equipment rentals, transportation, guides, a five course dinner, live music, libations, gratuity and a celebratory toast at midnight with high-energy music. The party starts at 10pm. For more info, CLICK HERE
