Phase II Improvements

Create Venues, Improve Trail System & Infrastructure

American Birkebeiner Outdoor CenterCreate Venues

We are excited to announce the plans for the new OO Nordic Center - a gateway to facilitate a wide variety of outdoor activities for people of all ages and abilities - a place for people to gather, organize, rally, educate and come together.  The planned facility will provide year-round heated bathrooms, large gathering area, community/group meeting room, kitchen area, vending area, and wax & bike maintenance area. Adjacent to the Nordic Center will be a multi-station fitness trail.  The new OO Nordic Center furthers our mission to enable and inspire the healthy, active, ‘Birkie’ lifestyle!

Trail Improvements

trailThe quality of our events and sustainability of our trail system requires rather extensive trail improvements & repairs that will assist us in low snow years.  Additional improvement include the creation of the new Korte start area, an initial investment in snowmaking equipment, an additional ‘wide’ Pisten Bully 400, and, the beginning of the much anticipated extension of the Classic Trail from OO south.

Improve Infrastructure

The infrastructure additions of warming shelters at Timber Trail & Gravel Pit, drilled wells at all warming shelters, and the new Hwy 77 underpass at Fish Hatchery, will improve the efficiency of all Birkie events and the safety of participants, volunteers, and all others who utilize our extensive 107k trail system throughout the year.
