Use of Groomed Trails

Our trail network is not designed for snowshoeing and we currently have no established snowshoe trails.  If you plan to snowshoe within the Paulson Ski Trails recreation area, we request that you stay off the groomed trails, travel adjacent to track-set trails and that trail crossings be infrequent and avoid disturbing the tracks set for classic and skate skiing.
If you happen to use our cabins or other facilities we would greatly appreciate a donation towards their maintenance.  Thank you!
Please note that dogs are not allowed within the ski area.
