The Central Oregon Nordic Club is pleased to be the recipient of grant funds from the Deschutes Trails Coalition and the Bend Sustainability Fund  in support of new and re-routed ski and snowshoe trails, improved signage, and better information at trailheads to make the trail experience better for all. Thank you!
