Cross country skiing opens

BISMARCK, N.D. - Some people have been waiting for a snowfall like this to have some fun.

The cross country skiing trails at Riverwood Golf Course opened Thursday.

Skiers say the snow isn't quite packed down, but it's still good exercise. Snoeshowing is also allowed next to the ski trails, and on any non-paved trail.

Riverwood has three routes, ranging from one to almost two and a half miles.
