Winter Recreation Code of Ethics

  • I will respect the rights of all winter recreationists to enjoy the beauty of the winter wonderland. I will respect public and private property.
  • I will park considerately, taking no more space than needed, without blocking other vehicles and without impeding access to trails.
  •  I will keep to the right when meeting another winter recreationist. I will yield the right-of-way to traffic moving downhill.
  •  I will slow down and use caution when approaching or overtaking another.
  •  I will respect designated areas, trail-use signs, and established ski tracks.
  •  When stopping, I will not block the trail.
  •  I will not disturb wildlife. I will avoid areas posted for the protection of feeding wildlife.
  •  I will pack out everything I packed in and will not litter.
  • I realize that my destination objective and travel speed should be determined by my equipment, ability, the terrain, weather and the traffic on the trail. In case of emergency, I will volunteer assistance.
  • I will not interfere with or harass others. I recognize that people judge all skiers or snowmobilers by my actions.

Thank you!
