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.
