These rules have been established by the International Ski Federation.
They allow everyone to enjoy the ski slopes in safety with respect to other skiers and snowboarders.
1. Respect for others by behaving in a responsible way so that the lives of other are not endangered.
2. Control your speed, by adapting it according to your abilities, taking into account the snow and weather conditions (Ex: slow down when crossing over beginner areas, near lift queues or at the bottom of the slopes).
3. Choose your direction in advance by taking a route that ensures the safety of the skier behind (skiers below you won't necessarily see you coming, it’s up to you to anticipate) to avoid any collision.
4. Observe a safe distance when overtaking and leave enough space to anticipate the route of the overtaken skier.
5. Manage starts and crossings safely by ensuring that you can start on a slope or practice area without endangering the lives of others, do so with a simple look up and down.
6. Stop intelligently, without obstructing the slope, and avoid stopping in narrow places or behind humps to remain visible to skiers uphill.
7. Use the edges of the slopes if you need to ski or walk back up the slope.
8. Check on the weather and respect markings by complying with signs (danger warning, closed slopes, avalanche risks).
9. Raise the alarm in case of an accident and provide assistance to the person in danger.
10. Identify yourself as a witness to an accident, whether you are directly involved or just a witness.
These 10 basic rules, easy to remember and to respect, ensure your development in complete serenity without endangering anyone, for a holiday without any hassle.
