Trail Etiquette

  • On groomed meadow ski trails, it is polite to walk/snowshoe on outer edge instead of the middle
  • Avoid skating, walking or running on classic xc ski tracks.
  • Avoid skiing right after volunteers groom trails. It takes 2-4 hours for the freshly groomed trails to set up.
  • Please let others know you are approaching from behind by politely calling out "trail" or "on your left" or "Hello there friendly skier, here I come" or whatever you make up.
  • If you are skiing fast and come upon slower skiers, please reduce your speed while you pass - or yell out like Peter does when flying down hills.
  • Fill in sitzmarks (disturbed snow left when you fall) best you can.
  • Downhill skiers have the right-of-way.
