1. Respect for Others
Be aware of all skiers around you and do not endanger them. The term ski includes all ski-like equipment, such as big foot, short carver, snowboard, snow bike ….
2. Control Of SpeedEvery skier must adapt their speed to the visibility, to their personal skill levels, to terrain, snow and weather conditions, and to the "traffic" on the pistes.
3. Choice of Route
Skiers approaching from behind must choose the route in such a way so not to endanger the skier ahead.
Overtaking is allowed from above, below and from the right or the left provided there is plenty of space for the overtaken skier to make any voluntary or involuntary movement.
5. Entering, Setting Off
Every skier who plans to enter the piste, or re-enter the piste after having stopped, must first check above and below them to ensure that they can do so without causing danger to others.
Unless absolutely necessary, a skier must avoid stopping on the slope in narrow places or where visibility is restricted. After a fall in such a place, a skier must move clear of the slope as soon as possible.
7. Ascending and Descending
Skiers ascending or descending by foot must use the edge of the slope.
8. Respecting Signs and Markings
Every skier has to observe signs and markings.
9. Assisting at Accidents
Every skier has to assist at accidents
All those involved in an accident, including witnesses, have to exchange names and addresses.
