Adherence to a few simple “rules of the trail” will help to ensure that everyone has a safe and enjoyable day on the trails:

  • Do not walk, run, snowshoe or bike on groomed classic ski tracks.
  • Avoid skating on classic tracks.
  • Keep single file on two way trails.
  • Downhill skiers have the right of way.
  • Always ski in control.
  • When approaching others from behind politely call “trail” or “on your left”.
  • Yield to skiers who overtake you.
  • If you fall, move off of the trail quickly and fill in your imprint.
  • When stopped, step to the side, out of the tracks.
  • Move off of the trail to allow grooming equipment to pass.
  • Help support trail grooming at Sibley Lake and Cutler ski areas by becoming a member of Black Mountain Nordic Club!
