A wooden grain elevator at Snowflake, on the now-abandoned CPR Snowflake Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Pembina, was built in 1962 by Federal Grain Limited, using lumber salvaged from its former elevator at Fallison, and operated until 1972. It was sold to Manitoba Pool Elevators in continued in operation until late 1980 when both elevators were closed and later sold into private ownership. The elevator was unused and in deteriorating condition at the time of a 2019 site visit.
