10 Rules For Skiers


Make sure you are properly equipped to prevent falls and limit the consequences: sunglasses or mask, helmet, suitable shoes and properly adjusted ski bindings.

Always look both uphill and downhill before you set off to check you can proceed safely.

Always ensure that your behaviour does not present a danger to others.

If you fall, move clear of the piste as quickly as possible.

Adapt your behaviour and speed to your ability, the piste and the weather conditions.

If you're stationary, always keep to the side of the piste.

Give a wide berth when overtaking to allow for unexpected moves by the downhill skier.

Always obey the signs and markings (you can't miss the fluorescent orange signs and banners).

Overtake wide to allow for unexpect moves by the downhill skier.

If you are involved in or witness an accident, report to the track / rescue teams, remain at their disposal and make yourself known.
