Historic Galena Lodge and the entire Nordic Trail system is one of our area’s unique features. Cherished by many, Galena Lodge was saved from possible destruction by a community effort in 1994. The Blaine County Recreation District now owns Galena and maintains and grooms the surrounding Nordic Trails. The BCRD and the Galena & the Trails Advisory Council hold the annual Galena Winter Benefit to raise critical funds to support the ongoing maintenance and care of the Lodge and Trails.

No tax dollars are used for Galena, making the funds raised at the benefit crucial to keeping Galena and the Trails open. Individual tickets are $85. Includes dinner and wine.

A sampling of the many fabulous items available at 2010 Galena Benefit include:

  • Fantastic Mountain Biking Adventure
