Skiers code to keep you safe on the slopes

!!! By law children below 14 years of age have to wear safety helmet while on the slopes !!!

The FIS (International Ski Federation) has established ten rules for the conduct of skiers and snow boarders. They are to ensure safety on the slopes and are governed by law.
In short, they are:

Do not endanger others.
Adapt the manner and speed of your skiing to your ability and to the general conditions on the mountain.
Choice of route
The skier/snow boarder in front has priority - leave enough space.
Leave plenty of space when overtaking a slower skier/snow boarder.
Entering and starting
Look up and down the mountain each time before starting or entering a marked run.
Only stop at the edge of the slopes or where you can easily be seen.
When climbing up or down, always keep to the side of the slopes
Obey all signs and markings - they are there for your safety.
In case of accidents provide help and alert the rescue service.
All those involved in an accident, including witnesses, should exchange names and addresses.

All the above rules are binding by law and apply to both skiers and snow boarders.

Important guidelines for skiers and snow boarders
You ski/board at your own risk.
Pay attention to all signs and markers.
Please ski/board on marked runs - these are protected from unexpected alpine dangers.
The areas outside the marked runs are called 'off slopes' and they are not patrolled or groomed.
Watch out for slope preparation machines.
Respect nature - take care not to ski in areas where young trees or wildlife will be disturbed and don't drop litter.
Consider taking lessons on a dry slope, and fitness sessions before going on holiday.
The above guidelines apply to all users of the marked slopes

Skiing or snowboarding slopes
Outside the marked slopes and itineraries are areas which are NOT protected from alpine dangers -

Signs around the ski area will warn you when avalanche danger is present.

Even when there is no warning of avalanches there could be local snow slides.

Unless you know an area well, only ski/board on slopes with a guide.
