Mt. Abram Uphill Policy
All posted signage and the Skier’s Responsibility Code must be followed.
Ticket/Pass Required – An Uphill Season Pass, Uphill Day Ticket (available online at all hours), regular Season Pass, or lift ticket for the day, is required for uphill travel.
Time/Day Restrictions – We allow uphill travel from 5:00 AM – 8:00 PM Thursday through Tuesday. There is no uphill permitted on Wednesdays as we prepare the mountain for operations going into the weekend.
Uphill Routes – For the safety of uphill skiers and riders as well as downhill skiers and riders we have made an array of designated uphill routes available. During hours of operation, you must uphill on designated routes. The designated routes are Roundabout to Sweeper, Lower Easy Rider (or Skyline drive from Westside) to Upper Easy Rider, Lower Easy Rider to Presto to Dudley to Sweeper, and the uphill trail. Outside of hours of operation, there is no uphill or downhill travel permitted Boris, Fearless Leader, or the Cliff.
General Rules – At all times uphill travel must be done on the far sides on the trails on the tree line. You are not permitted to ever travel up with more than two side by side and we ask that you stay single file as often as possible. Skin smart, be visible, stay to the side of the trail, avoid the inside of corners, and do not stop below a headwall. Any guest skiing outside of daylight hours must have a headlamp on.
Follow Trail Report – During operating hours, all skiers/riders must follow the current Trail Report and all posted signage. Please note that trails are closed as if traveling from the top of the main chairlift. All skiers/riders are responsible for knowing what is open/closed. The most recent Trail Report can give an idea of trail conditions during non-operating hours. Anything recently closed is not recommended.
Groomer/Equipment Etiquette – Watch out for and avoid all snowmaking equipment, snowmobiles, snowcats and any other hazards, vehicles, and workers. Do not ski over snowmaking hoses. If a groomer or snowmobile is present, uphill traffic must stop and step off the trail until the groomer passes. Downhill traffic should stay far away from any groomers or snowmobiles.
Touring with Dogs – We allow you to skin with dogs outside of hours of operation with a few restrictions. Clean up after your animals. It’s not only disrespectful to the mountain, but disrespectful to everyone else utilizing the uphill routes and every skier on the mountain. Skiing / riding with dogs is incredibly dangerous for the animals. Dogs and edges do not mix. We understand the appeal of skiing with your dogs, and it can be a ton of fun when done in a safe way. We ask you to be aware of the dangers and recognize that this is at your own risk.
