Skiers should pay attention to signs

Spring skiing promises to be good with the new snow we’ve been getting. I’d like to remind folks that all of the Sunset Loop trail, as well as many other trails, cross private property. There are signs posted directing skiers to stay on the trail.  When adults ski past these signs with their young children (who are old enough to read), they are teaching their children to ignore signage and disrespect private property owners’ rights.
This happened last ski season and again this year on the Sunset Loop system. No matter how tempting the hills look, or how much relief a short cut would provide, the trails are there courtesy of the land owners and that is the only place you should be skiing.
