The uphill skier's pledge

Winter hiking is new this year! As there are several sports taking place at the resort, in addition to maintenance operations, it is important that everyone respect our hiking code to allow harmonious cohabitation on the mountain and ensure that the practice of winter hiking can last.

  1. I will have my pass with me at all times on the trails.
  2. My last climb will begin no later than 9pm, and by 10pm, I will be leaving in my car.
  3. As a group, like scouts, in single file we will climb.
  4. At the edge of the ski run, throughout my ascent, I will stay.
  5. My headlamp after 4 pm I will wear, with white visible on the front, and red towards the rear.
  6. The maintenance crews I will always respect. When they arrive, I will stop and let them pass.
  7. The Mont-Orford website I will always check, for the latest information on closed trails for snowmaking, grooming and maintenance work.
  8. Expert or not, in no black run will I ever venture.
  9. Up is the only direction I will go on uphill trails - on skis, never with crampons or snowshoes.
  10. Though my best friend he may be, my dog will never come with me.
