Rules for Skiing at Notchview Reservation Classical Skiers : All trails, whether groomed with tracks or smoothed for skating, are open to classical skiers. Skating over prepared tracks ruins the skiing for others. Walking on the groomed ski tracks ruins the skiing. Avoid blisters and cold feet — wear well-fitting, waterproof boots. Avoid too many layers of socks, which can impede circulation.
Watch the weather.
Temperatures drop quickly after sunset. Be aware of the wind chill factor. Dress for winter. Wear layers that can be added or removed —a base layer to wick moisture from your body; a warm middle layer; and an outer layer that is wind and water resistant.
