  • Ski within ability and skill, in terms of distance and speed
  • Ski on the right side of the trail and pass other skiers with caution
  • Keep poles close to body
  • Downhill skiers always have the right of way
  • Please step off the track or leave the trail when stopping or if it is busy
  • Obey all Park District regulations and trail markings
  • Skiers are asked not to ski on the tees or greens and to use the groomed and marked courses on the golf courses.
