blacktail trail winter

Bigfork Community Nordic Center (BCNC) is located on Montana State land at the corner of Foothills road & Jewel Basin road. Over 10 kilometers of varied terrain (including flat, rolling and challenging hills) are groomed 5 days per week, Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from December thru March 31.

In accordance with Montana State Law, skiers using Bigfork Community Nordic Center are required to have a valid “Montana Recreational Use License.”

We pay an annual State “Land Use License” fee of $800 to the MT Department of State Lands for the use of the BCNC trail system. We also expend considerable funds each week to maintain the trails, as well as maintain grooming equipment.

Our BCNC trails are groomed for skiers. Snowshoers are welcome, but please observe posted trail etiquette signs.

We specifically request that hikers (without snowshoes), snowmobilers, ATV-ers, and snow-bikers, respect the intended ski use of our trail system and find other areas to recreate.

BCNC DOG POLICY: Dog tracks and dog “dirt” damage the groomed trail surface. PlEASE respect the intended use of and considerable expense invested in the BCNC Nordic trails. Thank you!

Attention Classic Skiers….want one last day of skiing in a nice track?? Come on out this morning, I picked up all signs yesterday afternoon and the trail was soft enough that I lowered the track setter. Track is around most of course (Birch Loop and Blackfoot has no track) Track will be fast and fun today, enjoy! Thanks for a good year…

This may be the last day of grooming for Bigfork Nordic trails. Grooming will be completed about 10:30am today. We will reset the skate lane. The trail surface is too hard to reset the classic track. It’s been a short but great Nordic season. Thanks for your support! Enjoy!

Good Morning! We will have the Bigfork trails groomed by 10am this morning. We do not expect to have new classic track as the trail surface is too hard to set track. Trails should be beautiful in the spring sun. enjoy getting out!

19 degrees on this clear morning. We are out grooming all trails this morning, we won’t be able to lay much of any classic track in these conditions (trails are frozen too hard) It will be icy until the sun starts to warm things up. Grooming will be spotty this week since it will be warming up so much, enjoy the waning days of skiing…

24 degrees with no new snow, trails will be frozen and icy this morning, getting softer as the day warms. We are out grooming all trails this morning. Good news from the DNRC we can groom until the 31st!! However our regular groomer can’t groom anymore, at this point grooming will depend on if the back-up volunteer groomers can make it out and if the weather permits. Check back here to see if we’re out grooming or not…enjoy a great day on the trails..
