                                   Trail Etiquette

             Kaslo Nordic Ski Area Etiquette 

If you are snowshoeing or walking please avoid stepping 
or walking on the set ski tracks.

Up hill skiers should give way to down hill skiers by 
stepping out of the tracks. Also please step out of the
 tracks for waxing, resting etc.

Please...for skier safety and courtesy…..Dogs on short
 leash on the BLUE trail to the warm-up/equipment shed.
 Dogs off leash go on the GREEN trail to the east of the shed.
 Skiers only on the RED trail to the west/north of
 the shed (refer to attached trail map). The combination 
of fast moving skiers on hills and dogs can cause collisions 
resulting in potential skier and dog injury. If there are 
cars in the parking lot when you arrive with your dog, 
you should travel east on the Green trail to avoid 
potential collisions.

Pick up or flick dog poop off the trail area. No one
 likes brown wax on their skis!

Dogs walking on the ski tracks (especially if freshly
 groomed and set) break the set tracks apart.

Thanks, and Happy Trails
