Three Island County Park: Trails at north and south ends are groomed. Middle section is signed and ungroomed due to logging. Skiers report good to very good skiing. Track has set up well. NOTE: Three Island has more than 20-km of skate lane and classical track and is listed as easy to intermediate.

Fern Lake: Was groomed Dec. 10 and skiing is good.
BHS Nordic Trail: Very good skiing and good classical track. May have some touch-up work before the weekend if needed. NOTE: Trail access is behind the high school at the west end by the maintenance building. Minnesota ski pass is needed unless you are a Bemidji School District student.
