This is Lingít Aaní
Our trails wind through Lingít Aaní.

Friendly Reminders While Sharing Our Trails

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!”

To help protect our members and the larger community against COVID-19:
It is encouraged to wear a buff or other multi-functional face covering that can be pulled over one’s nose and mouth if it is necessary to pass people on ski trails and there is no opportunity to keep 6 feet of separation. We also encourage the use of cloth face coverings before and after skiing while interacting with skiers and other trail users. The same effort should be made if a skier is coming towards you on the same trail.
We recommend that all participants bring hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes in order to remain safe if using restroom facilities.
