Friendly Reminders While Sharing Our Trails

Skate Skiers Please skate in the skate lane.
Classic Skiers Ski in the set classic tracks and not in the skate lane (leaves ruts when snow is wet and then freezes).
Walkers & Snowshoers Please walk to the side of the trails opposite the set classic tracks.
Groomers can be at work on the trails at any time and often work at night and early morning. Please watch out for them, give way to let them pass, and don’t forget to say, “thank you!”
Say “Hello!” to your fellow skiers as you pass by. Show courtesy for all and share the trails.
Dogs Keep your owners close and under control, have them pick up and dispose of your scat, and remind them to deck you out in reflectors and/or lights at night. Please, no dogs on the groomed trails at Eaglecrest. (More on being a good dog citizen here.)
