The Snow-elves lived at the North Pole. Not much is known about the Snow-elves; apparently they dressed in white (unlike the Red and Green Elves), since they blended with the snow.[1]

The Snow-elves only appear once in tales of the Father Christmas Letters, at a celebration of the coming of winter. The festivities were organised by Father Christmas, and included a Bonfire to make the North Polar Bear happy. To the surprise of Father Christmas and the Polar Bear, the Snow-elves let off all the rockets — hundreds of them — together.[1]
