The law states that a Groomer has the right of way. Common sense says DO NOT PASS A MOVING GROOMER!!!

Jefferson Hilanders Groomer Pisten Bully 100

RECOMMENDED PRACTICE FOR PASSING A GROOMER approved by NHSA map and trails committee

  1. FOR ONCOMING SLEDS: The sled should pull off the trail and allow the groomer to pass by.
  2. OVERTAKING A GROOMER: The groomer operator should find a safe place to pull over and stop. The rider can then check to see if they can safely pass the groomer.

    NOTE: The groomer operator will not signal a sled to pass.

    Reason: Each rider must take responsibility for passing the Groomer.
