Note: PLEASE do not hike on soft, snow-covered trails without snowshoes. This leaves footprints which freeze and make winter silent sports activities very difficult for those who come after you. If you must walk on/near a ski trail, stay well off to the side of the groomed surface. Thank you for your cooperation!
