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, snow-bikers and fat 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!

20 degrees and all trails have been groomed. No track set as our track setter is not working, there wouldn’t have been enough new snow to set a decent track anyways. Skiing will be nice today! Come and get it before the rain rolls back in!

What is the deal with the weather? Is it February or April?? 40 degrees and no grooming again…hopefully there’s snow left if it ever cools down again! Looks like Monday night will cool off, if it does we will groom Tuesday morning…

38 degrees and no grooming today….we can’t catch a break and get cooler temps it seems!Emoji

23 February, 2024 07:24

32 degrees and no grooming today. It did freeze very slightly last night but not enough to groom, the equipment most likely would turn into a giant snowball this morning as the freeze is just slight and snow is still soft underneath. Cross the fingers for cooler temps!

22 February, 2024 09:50

37 degrees and no grooming today….just waiting for some cool weather to hopefully return!!

21 February, 2024 09:40

34 degrees and after a fair bit of rain yesterday and last night there was no grooming this morning. We’ll be back out once it cools back down…..
