Ski Safety

1. Respect for others

People using the pistes must behave in such a way that they do not put other people in danger or harm them, either by their behaviour or with their equipment

2. Speed and behaviour

People using the pistes must adapt their speed and behaviour to suit their personal abilities as well as the general terrain and weather conditions, the state of the snow and the density of the traffic

3. Choice of route

A skier or snowboarder coming from behind must choose his route in such a way that he does not endanger skiers or snowboarders ahead.

4. Overtaking

Overtaking can be done from above or below and to the right or left, as long as the person doing the overtaking allows sufficient space for voluntary (or involuntary) movements of the person he is passing

5. Entering a marked run and starting off

A skier or snowboarder entering a marked run, starting again after stopping or moving upwards on the slopes must look up and down the slopes that he can do so without endangering himself or others.

6. Stopping on the piste

Unless absolutely necessary, a skier or snowboarder must avoid stopping on the piste in narrow places or where visibility is restricted. After a fall in such a place, a skier or snowboarder must move clear of the piste as soon as possible.

7. Going up and down on foot

People who are obliged to go up or down a piste on foot must use the edge of the piste, taking care that neither they nor their equipment is a danger to others

8. Respect for information, markings and signs

Users must take notice of information about weather and snow/piste conditions and respect all markings and signs on the mountain

9. Assistance

Anyone witness to or involved in an accident is duty bound to assist, particularly by raising the alarm. If need be, and at the request of the first-aid people, they must put themselves at their disposal

10. Identification

Every skier or snowboarder and witness, whether a responsible party or not, must exchange names and addresses following an accident.
