      From their website:
      "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."
