The International Ski and Snowboard Federation (FIS) has established a set of rules that much like the traffic rules on the roads are supposed to make ski slopes a safer place. We strongly advise you to stick to these rules for the safety of both you and the people around you.
A skier or snowboarder must behave in such a way that he does not endanger or prejudice others.
A skier or snowboarder must move in control. He must adapt his speed and manner of skiing or snowboarding to his personal ability and to the prevailing conditions of terrain, snow and weather as well as to the density of traffic.
A skier or snowboarder coming from behind must choose his route in such a way that he does not endanger skiers or snowboarders ahead.
A skier or snowboarder may overtake another skier or snowboarder above or below and to the right or to the left provided that he leaves enough space for the overtaken skier or snowboarder to make any voluntary or involuntary movement.
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.
Unless absolutely necessary, a skier or snowboarder must avoid stopping on the slope in narrow places or where visibility is restricted. After a fall in such a place, a skier or snowboarder must move and clear of the slope as soon as possible.
A skier or snowboarder either climbing or descending on foot must keep to the side of the slope.
