More people recreate in the backcountry every year. Balanced use of the backcountry works best if all users are educated and share responsibility for their role in helping all users enjoy a positive experience.
Silent Tracks initiated the concept of the Winter Manners brochure in 2018. The text for the brochure was created collaboratively with input from multiple user groups including Share the Slate, the Crested Butte Nordic Center, and others. We appreciate the feedback we received on the brochure and look forward to similar teamwork on future initiatives.
