Seeley Lake trying to rival Methow Valley ski trails

NORDIC SKIING -- Seeley Lake, Mont., citizens are slowly sliding into the next phase of a project to transform their small, rural community into a national nordic ski destination they say will rival the Methow Valley's sport trail system, which has around 120 MILES of trails, most of them groomed during winter.

Although Seeley Lake currently has only 15K of groomed trails, a feasibility study conducted by Vermont-based Morton Trails has set out a $4 million path toward nordic nirvana.

Seeley Lake's elevation north of Missoula features snowpack and rolling terrain rival some of the best nordic ski destinations in the country, the consultant said.
