DURING THE ASCENT AND DESCENT

DURING THE STATION’S OPERATING HOURS (8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.)

For the ascent: you must take the official ascent paths arrowed on the map. It is strictly forbidden to ride outside these areas.
For the descent: only take one of our marked and open ski trails, in YELLOW.

OUTSIDE OF STATION OPERATING HOURS – BEFORE AND AFTER OPENING (6:00 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.)

For the ascent: You are allowed to take the official arrowed ascent paths on the map AND the YELLOW downhill trails on the map.
For the descent: Only take one of our trails marked in YELLOW on the map. Respect the opening and closing statutes at all times. For your safety
and the safety of our staff, do not go outside these areas.

You must have left the station by 8:30 p.m. due to the daily maintenance operations. The grooming operations require the use of a winch, which poses
a real danger to the skier who would come into contact with the steel cable. The steel cable can be difficult to detect because it can sway or be
hidden under snow or under full tension when the groomer applies a load to it. Note that the cables can be up to 1000 metres long and these are
used.

SECURITY RULES

You must respect the hours of use of the ascent and descent areas at all times.

Validate and respect the openings/closings of ski trails and ascent paths in force.

YOU MUST HAVE left BY 8:30 p.m.

Owl’s Head recommends that you do not use the ascent areas in the pre or post-season, due to the dangers that snowmaking and grooming operations can represent and due to the lack of rescue teams on the ground. No rescue service is available when the ski resort is closed. Call 911 in an emergency.

Ascents and descents are permitted exclusively according to the schedule determined by
Owl’s Head.

Only climb through the designated places (validate the areas according to the schedule above) and at the edge of the trail.

Stay clearly visible and go up in a single file, never two abreast.

At all times, you must use alpine climbing skis/boards equipped with metal edges as well as brakes or retaining straps.

Wearing crampons and snowshoes is prohibited at all times.

At all times, it is STRICTLY FORBIDDEN to descend on the ascent paths as well as on close or non-designated trails. Outside of resort opening hours, only take one of the designated trails for the descent. For your safety and the safety of our staff, do not leave these areas.

At all times you must observe the Mountain Code of Conduct.

Do not take a closed trail or ascent path.

Owl’s Head reserves the right to charge a fee of $ 300 or more for any assistance requests outside of its opening hours or outside of its marked and open ski trails/paths. A delay may be expected for rescue following a report outside the station’s operating hours. It is forbidden to access the trails during snowmaking and grooming. If you come across a vehicle (groomer, snowmobile) please stop at the edge of the trail and let it pass.

You must make sure you are visible 100% of the time after 4:00 p.m. by using white front light as well as a red rear light.

Do not leave any waste or trace of your passage. Be eco-responsible!

Animals are not allowed on the paths or on the trails.

IN CASE OF EMERGENCY

DURING THE STATION’S OPERATING HOURS (8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.)

The ascent paths ARE NOT PATROLLED. Rescue on notification only and allow sufficient time for it. For all assistance, please contact a patroller, a mountain ambassador or a ski lift operator. You can also go to one of the patrol service points. You will find one on the summit as well as the main base of the resort. You can also join the station patrol by calling 1-800-363-3342.

OUTSIDE OF STATION OPERATING HOURS – BEFORE AND AFTER OPENING (6:00 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.)

NO PATROL SERVICE IS OFFERED outside of regular ski resort hours of operation. In case of emergency, you must REPORT 911. You are responsible for your own safety. ATTENTION: ON THE MOUNTAIN, THE CELLULAR NETWORK MAY BE WEAK OR EVEN NON-EXISTING.

It is permitted to use the YELLOW trails as an ascent path OUTSIDE OF STATION OPERATING HOURS.
