Beltrami Electric sought candidates for the Touchstone Energy® Community Award, which recognizes organizations for outstanding contributions to the local community. Bemidji Area Cross Country Ski Club was nominated by Robert Montebello of Bemidji.

Since the early 1980s, the Bemidji Area Cross Country Ski Club has been working to enhance the cross country ski trails in the Bemidji area. The club currently grooms numerous local trails to include the Montebello lighted trail at the Bemidji City Park, Hobson Forest trail, Movil Maze trail, Three Island Lake Park trails, Buena Vista trails, Fern Lake trails as well as the Bemidji High School forest trail. There are over 100 kilometers of trails groomed and maintained by the club year around. If you ski in the Bemidji area, you owe that opportunity to this club.

The statewide award recipient will be selected from numerous local award winners throughout Minnesota and the overall winner will receive $1,000 toward a community cause of choice.
