Movil Maze: Was scheduled to be groomed on Thursday. Skiers report excellent conditions. NOTE: Movil Maze has 14-km of skate lane and classical track and is listed as intermediate to expert.

Three Island County Park: Trails at the north and south ends are groomed. Middle section is signed and ungroomed due to logging. Skiers report good to very good skiing and the 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.
Buena Vista: A work in progress. West side (through the culvert) is in better shape than the east side. Volunteers are grooming as the snow and wet ground allow. NOTE: Buena Vista has 25-km of skate lane and classical track and is listed as intermediate to expert.
Fern Lake: Groomed Monday and Tuesday. The fall trail was in excellent shape so the trail should groom well.
BHS Nordic Trail: Groomed Wednesday and skiing is very good. 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.
