Snow chains?

I was told at the dealership not to use metal chains on the wheels because it'll ruin it. However, I looked in the manual and it seems to be regular chains. I am planning a snowboarding trip and this is confusing me quite bad.

It is possible for the chain to damage the rim a little, if they are not mounted correctly. If you are concerned get the cable type. that should be more than enough to get you to the slopes.
