  1. Ski under control to avoid hazards and other skiers.

  2. Yield to other skiers when entering a trail or starting downhill.

  3. Avoid stopping in the middle of hills and obstructing trails or intersections.

  4. Skiers coming downhill have the right-of-way. Pass oncoming skiers on the right side.

  5. Observe all posted signs and stay off closed trails and out of closed areas.

  6. Please don’t step in the track without skis on. Be sure to fill in sitzmarks.

  7. Be prepared. Carry a small pack for drinking water, extra food, clothing, a compass and map.

  8. Walking, snowshoeing, snowmobiles and dogs are not permitted on groomed ski trails.

  9. Snowshoers yield to skiers at trail intersections.

BE AWARE Grooming machines may be on trails at any time. Both natural and man-made obstacles or hazards may exist at any time. Lakes and streams are subject to unstable ice and snow.
