Winter Recreation Tips

Trail Guidelines

  • Stay to the right and travel in single file.

  • Downhill persons have the right-of-way.

  • Stop where you are visible to others.

  • Avoid obstructing a trail.

  • Fill in sitzmarks (holes created by falling).

  • Pack it in, pack it out. This includes pet waste!

  • Avoid loud and/or abusive language or actions. These are family-use areas.

  • Consider making a donation using this website or a tube at the ski area entrance. Donations are used to maintain trails and entrance roads.

Winter Recreation Safety Tips

  • Dress in layers and appropriate gear to keep warm and dry.

  • Be prepared for sudden changes in weather.

  • Wear sunglasses and sunscreen.

  • Carry nutritious snacks and plenty of water.

  • Be aware of where you are at all times; use an area map and compass.

  • Carry a first aid kit and know how to use the items inside.

  • Carry identification with a list of medications and contacts.

  • Tell someone where you are going and when you plan to return. There is not reliable cellular phone service at the nordic areas.
