The trail to High Head is considered a hiking/snowshoe trail and is not groomed.
Do or Die is also considered a hiking/snowshoe/Nordic trail and is not groomed.
After your ski or snowshoe you must ski down the mountain.
The alpine trail “Chickadee” is recommended and is the easiest way down the mountain. As you come out of the cross country trails it is to your right and signed with a green circle.
Please make sure you exit the cross country trails before the Chickadee is swept and closed for night skiing. It is an unlit trail and roped off an hour before sunset.
