Rules of conduct on ski slopes
- Respect for others
A skier or snowboarder must behave in a manner that does not put others in danger or cause injury.
- Control of speed and of personal behaviour
A skier or snowboarder must move in control. He must maintain an appropriate speed and adapt speed based on his skiing ability, conditions of the pistes, visibility, weather conditions and amount of people on the pistes.
- Choice of direction
A skier or snowboarder uphill has the possibility to decide his course and should maintain a course that avoids collisions with skiers further down.
A skier or snowboarder may overtake another skier or snowboarder above or below (with sufficient space and visibility), to the right or left, but always at a distance to avoid putting the other skier in difficulty.
- Entry and crossings
A skier or snowboarder entering the piste or starting again after a stop must ensure his personal safety and that of others, at a crossing give way to the right or according to eventual indications.
A skier or snowboarder must avoid stopping, unless necessary, along passages where all must pass or where there is no visibility. Any stops must be made along the edge of the pistes. In case of a fall the skier or snowboarder should clear the area as soon as possible.
- Climbing or descending on foot
A skier or snowboarder either climbing or descending on foot must keep to the side of the piste.
- Respect signposts
A skier or snowboarder must respect and follow the regulations regarding the ski pistes, in particular the compulsory use of helmets for children under 18 years of age.
All skiers should assist in the case of an accident.
Anyone involved in an accident or witness to an accident is required to provide their personal details
