Things You Should Know Before You Visit

THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW BEFORE YOU VISIT

  • Dogs – we all love dogs but for safety and in fairness of all of our customers we do not allow dogs on the trails at any time. Dogs are welcome around the chalet but they must be on a leash at all times. Please do not leave your dogs in your car when it is hot or cold.
  • Rental procedures – if you are renting equipment please follow the following steps:
    • When you pass through the front doors of the chalet please go to the rental desk that is just to your left and fill out a rental form before you go to the front desk to pay. The form must be filled out on both sides and we require a form for every person renting over the age of 19. Renters who are 19 and under can be added to an adult form.
    • Proceed to the front desk to pay for your rentals. We require a credit card imprint for security for all rentals. We will accept your car keys if you do not have a credit card.
    • Once you have paid for your rentals please proceed to the rental shop to pick up your equipment.
    • Please exit the rental shop through the rental doors. When returning your equipment please return back through the same doors.
    • Rental equipment must be returned at least 15 minutes before closing.
  • We do not sell any trail passes later than 1 ¼ hours before our closing time for the day. This means that if we close at 5 pm for the day the last time that we will sell a trail pass is 3:45 pm.
  • For insurance reasons access to our trails is prohibited before or after we are open for business. Skiing, snowshoeing or biking when we are closed is trespassing.
  • For your safety at the end of each day all skiers or riders must be off the trails at the time of closing before staff can leave. There is a $150 surcharge if we have to go out and find customers on the trails who decide to stay after hours. The last thing that we want to do is to leave someone who is hurt out on the trails. If you are hurt please call us at 705 487 4775 and we will come out and help you.
  • Parking in the lower lot next to the chalet on weekends in the winter is reserved for members only. Season pass holders and day pass holders must park in the upper lot. Cars that do not have the proper parking pass in the lower lot will be towed.
  • All of our trails are one way only unless marked. We have only two small ski trail sections that are two way – a 100 meter section near the top of Home Run and the access trail to the Wiggly Extension. All MTB and snowshoe trails are one way only. Going the wrong way on a trail is dangerous and will result in the loss of access to trails. Please ski or ride only in the direction that is marked.
  • We do allow walking or running on our trails in the summer with the purchase of a trail fee. These activities are limited to our double track trails only. There is no walking or running allowed on single track mountain bike trails.
  • We do have handicap access in our chalet along with a special area for parking. Please call us if you require special access and we will direct you to the proper area. The new West Wing is barrier free.
  • 1/2 day ticket process for skiing– if you arrive in the morning you will be required to purchase a full day ticket. If you finish skiing before 12:30 pm you can come into the chalet and receive a refund of the difference between the price of the full day ticket and the ½ day ticket. You will need to give us back your trail pass at this time. The afternoon ½ day ticket is only good from 1 pm.  We will not sell any afternoon ½ day tickets before 1:00.
  • The Meadowlands trail is closed at 4 pm each day.
  • Night skiing – we are open for night skiing during most of the winter until 8 pm from Monday to Friday. Skiing is permitted on our night loop as well as on the Torino and Nagano trails only with a headlamp.
