Getting to Mount Cain

While many of you are returning to enjoy our little ski hill, some of you may be new comers. Sometimes, getting to Cain is part of the adventure so we thought we would share some tips with you to ensure you arrive safely.

You must bring chains with you. Moreover, you must know how to put your chains on. Many people have purchased chains and never taken them out of the box. Then, when the snow is deep and it is getting dark, there is a mad scramble to read the instructions in the middle of the road. This is hard on other drivers and dangerous. Please do a practice run with your chains before you leave your driveway – you won’t regret it.

Over the years significant work has been done on the road from the highway to Cain, making it wider and safer. Nevertheless it is a logging road and we plow it ourselves. Please drive with caution, be aware of other cars, and look out for the grader as you come around corners. Your safety is important to us so please drive safely.

If you use your chains and drive with caution you will arrive safe and sound but we recommend also bringing a shovel. The snow can get deep and you might need to do some digging. Having a shovel in your car is never a bad idea. Check out this page for directions to Cain.
