Sledding safety

Keeping safe at a Sno-park is as simple as taking a few extra precautions:

– Always carry a shovel and tire chains. When parking overnight, stake vehicles with 1-inch-by-2-inch-by-8-foot poles at the corners exposed to snow removal equipment. Vehicles should remain locked and all valuable items should be kept out of plain view.

-Because winter activities can be dangerous, make sure to wear appropriate clothing and use common sense. Consider individual skill levels, the terrain and the weather. It is best to check the weather conditions in advance. For a recording of highway conditions, call 1-800-427-7623.

– Just a reminder, trash receptacles are not provided at most Sno-Parks. Visitors are asked to take their garbage home for disposal.
