Important Guidelines

Sections of the Art Park trail are shared with x-country skiers from Crystal Mountain.

For the safety of all, we ask all snowshoe hikers to please follow these important guidelines:

  • Always be aware of x-country skiers. They move quickly and quietly.
  • Skiers always have the right-of-way. Please move aside to allow skiers to pass.
  • Please keep to the side of groomed ski trails whenever possible.
  • Absolutely no boot hikers are allowed on groomed ski trails. Please use snowshoes for winter hikes.
