Trail Etiquette for Skiers, Snowshoers & Snowplay

The trails at Cabin Creek are very heavily used. We all need to follow trail etiquette so everyone can enjoy the trails.
  • Please do not walk on the groomed ski trails, it quickly destroys the grooming.
  • Snowshoe on the edges of the trail, not on the set tracks nor down the middle of the trail.
  • Dogs are allowed on the South Loop trail. Where can I go with my dog?
  • Above all - be nice!
More suggestions can be found at snowrec.org and rei.com.

Groomed lower trails, The Road, Amabilis to the top and Pickett View trail.

The cold temperature and fresh snow from yesterday makes the trails seem like the first of March not mid April.

Clear sky above its going to be a beautiful morning. Final day of grooming.
