“Oh, the weather outside is frightful – So the skiing is delightful!” Every new layer of powder on ground just makes the ski conditions better and better! It’s worth the trip out to Ellenwood, trust me. We love saying “Hello” to new faces on the trails. If you are new to the sport, there are some things you need to know. Call it ski etiquette…
• Yield to faster skiers or downhill skiers. Step off to the side of the track to allow faster skiers to pass. (…otherwise they might crash into you;-)
• If you are going to overtake another skier, yell “Track”, and proceed only after they have stepped to the side. (…like yelling “FORE” when you’re golfing. It’s best NOT to wait ’til the last second to yell by the way, especially if you’re picking up speed on a downhill run. Think about it…;-)
• Respect other skiers and do not walk or snowshoe in ski tracks. If you fall, try to get off the track as gently as possible and fill in any holes. (…like filling in a divot on a fairway. There’s another golf analogy for ya;-)
Have fun and be safe out there!
