If you, someone you’re with, or someone you come upon on the trails needs help in getting back to the chalet, or other help,
you can call for assistance if
You have your cell phone with this number in it.
The caller may have to move location to be in cell range. See the on-trails posted cell reception maps and/or the LHNS Members 2019/20 Emergency Responders Contacts List with Cell Reception Map available free from the Sign Kiosk pamphlet box across from the Chalet’s main door.
You will hear a message redirecting you to call the number of either a LHNS Safety Host currently on the trails, or our Operations Manager at the Chalet – either of whom can get a snowmobile and safety equipment to where it is needed.
If there is no local LHNS person on site, you will be instructed to call 911.  Their response could be from 60 to 90 minutes, or more.
There is no monitoring of this ER number and messages left at it will not be responded to.
