Bonner County is home to many trails that remain open for those that like to cross country ski and snowshoe. The local club is called the Sandpoint Nordic Club and there is also the Panhandle Nordic Club that was founded in 1988 to promote winter recreational activities with well over 12 miles to ski, snowshoe, and enjoy.
