When climbing a hill, approach the summit with caution.
Do not ride off cornices.
Avoid riding on frozen waterways when possible.
When approaching a corner, reduce your speed to avoid sliding.
Lean into turns with your upper body to enhance the sled’s maneuverability.
Cross roadways at a 90-degree angle.
Pump your brake when going downhill to avoid locking the brakes.
Be aware of unmarked hazards or obstacles hidden beneath the snow.
Travel at reasonable speeds.
When riding at night, use extra caution. Wear reflective clothing and reduce your speed.
Do not accommodate extra riders over the delineated limit.
Comply with signs and barriers.
Buddy up with two or three riders as riding solo can leave you vulnerable if you have an accident or breakdown.
