    Hi Guys,

    Quick question, when Night skiing is on Wombats Ramble, is there enough light to ski the home trail or even down to the village bowl? Are you allowed to?

    Thanks

    Simple answer is NO...it is not permitted for serious safety reasons. One is that the area is not patrolled or swept so an injured or lost person could go undetected, also there is night works traffic (grooming kats and snow maker's snowmobiles) that are using these trails which is not expecting skier traffic.

    Definite no. Have heard of instances in the past where passes have been pulled for it - it's treated the same as disobeying warning signs for the reasons Hully mentioned.
