Outdoor Adventures Sledding/Skating Safety Tips

Winter is a great time to get outdoors and have some fun.

Safety Sledding Tips Do…………………. • Choose a hill that has a gentle slope and that is free of obstacles such as trees, signs, fences, rocks, creeks, parked or moving vehicles, railway track, holes or jumps. • Sled during the daylight or on a well lit hill. • Dress properly, protecting hands, feet, and your face from the cold. • Tuck in any scarves, strings, or long hats that could potentially catch on a rock or tree and cause strangulation or other serious injuries. • Sled by sitting or kneeling down. Never go down head first or standing up. • Check your sled for cracks or damage before use. Choose sleds that you can steer or stop. • Have only the recommended number of passengers on a sled at one time. • Wear a properly fitted ski or hockey helmet to protect against brain injuries. • Wait until the path is clear before starting down the hill. This could help prevent you from running into another person on your way down. • Move out of the way quickly if you fall or stop suddenly. • Walk back up the side of the hill, away from other sledders. • Parents should go on sleds with children under the age of 5. • Have an adult supervise children while they are sledding. Avoid……………… • Hills that are too icy – you want to be able to stop if you need to; • Inner tubes, crazy carpets, flying saucers, garbage bags and cardboard boxes- they are difficult to control. • Overcrowding a sled or toboggan with too many riders

Safety Skating Tips Do…………………. • Wear skates that are your size to avoid ankle and knee injuries. Skates that are too big can cause falls and other injuries. • Skate in designated skating areas where the ice is known to be strong • Check for cracks, holes, and debris on the ice. • Be considerate of other skaters, including those who are new to the ice. • Wear a helmet, especially young children who are learning how to skate. Avoid……………… • Skating alone • Bumping into other people • Skating on an untested lake or pond Remember: Safe ice is found at your local ice rinks. Safe outdoor skating must have adult supervision.

Safe Winter Activity Rules • Sledding, snowboarding and skiing can cause severe injuries. • Steel-runner sleds or inner tubes are strictly prohibited in parks. • Sled, snowboard and ski in designated areas only. • Pets and alcoholic beverages are strictly prohibited on sledding hills. • All sledders, snowboarders and skiers are recommended to wear protective clothing, equipment and helmets. • Sled, snowboard and ski at your own risk.

Trail Etiquette

1.

Campbell Creek Trail. Victor to C Street-1 mile C Street to New Seward-2.5 miles New Seward to Lake Otis-0.8 miles Lake Otis to Tudor Road 1.7 miles.

All trails as designated as multi-use April-October. Allowed use on trails, trail etiquette and rules change when adequate snowfall allows for track setting and grooming of the trails. Please contribute to positive trail experiences by observing winter trail use designations and trail etiquette.

2.

Do not take dogs, horses or mt. bikes on designated ski trails. These activities destroy tracks and may create hazards. On multiuse or skijoring trails please remember to scoop after your dogs and avoid walking on diagonal ski tracks.

Lake Otis Trail. Campbell Creek Park to O’Malley Road-4 miles.

3.

Watch for grooming equipment any time of the day or night. Please move well off the trail to allow equipment to pass.

C Street Trail. Dimond Blvd. to Government Hill-7 miles.

4.

Avoid skiing directly behind grooming equipment. It takes 2-4 hours for freshly groomed snow to “set up” and harden. Fresh tracks are irresistible, but resisting can make the trails last longer.

Northern Lights Trail. Muldoon Park to Earthquake Park-8 miles.

5.

Travel in the indicated direction of traffic. Practicing this rule will prevent accidents and damage to the tracks.

6.

Do not skate across diagonal tracks. Respect the DIAGONAL/ CLASSICAL SKIING ONLY trails.

7.

You were a beginner too. Be respectful and considerate of other’s skiing abilities. If you fall, fill in the hole.

8.

Closed trails are for your safety. During competitions, portions of the trail system may be closed. Please respect all closures.

9.

Don’t become a trail obstacle. If you fall, get clear of the trail quickly and repair the damage. Do not stop where you obstruct the trail or are not visible.

Glenn Hwy Trail. Bartlett Pool to Chugiak Elementary School-14 Miles Davis Park to Bartlett Pool-2 miles. Muldoon/Tudor Road Trails Centennial Park to Spenard Rec. Center via Muldoon/Tudor-10 miles. Debarr Road Trail. Sitka Street Park to Muldoon Road-4 miles.

10. A pulled sled is allowed on multi-use trails. If you tow a pulk (sled), please use skate lanes.
