The Seeley Hills Classic is the major fundraiser for the Seeley Hills Club and the revenue generated has allowed the club to promote skiing in many ways. The club annually supports ski clinics in conjunction with the American Birkebeiner and the USSA. The club was responsible for lighting the Birkie Trail at the OO area. The club has also developed a new 15K Sawyer County Ski Trail in Seeley which it maintains and grooms, and has purchased grooming and moving equipment for use on those trails.
