RULES TO BE RESPECTED ON THE SLOPES BY ALL SLOPE-USERS

The piste and off-piste rescue services are not free of charge and can be very expensive. Prices are posted in all the resorts at the skilifts and information points. Special insurance and assistance formulas are available. Ask at the Lift Pass Counters, Sports Club and Ski Schools for information. All slope-users are responsible from a penal point of view for injuries inflicted unintentionally to other skiers.

1. Respect for others
All slope-users must always behave in such a way that they do not endanger others nor harm them by their behaviour or their equipment.
2. Control of speed
All slope-users must adopt their speed and behaviour to their personal capabilities as well as to the general conditions of the slope, weather, snow conditions and density of other slope-users existing at the time.
3. Choice of direction
The slope-users who are higher up the slope are in a position which enables them to choose their trajectory. They must always make this choice in such a way that they do not endanger the slope-users below.
4. Overtaking
Overtaking may take place above or below, to the left or to the right, but must always be undertaken with sufficient space to take into account the evolution of movement of the slope-user being overtaken.
5. Crossing slopes
When ever entering, starting off from or crossing slopes, all slope-users must check visually up-hill and down to ensure that they can do so without endangering themselves or other slope-users.
6. Stopping
All slope-users must avoid stopping in narrow places or areas of restricted visibility. In the event of a fall, they should remove themselves from the slope as quickly as possible.
7. Walking up or downhill
Any slope-user who is obliged to move up or downhill on foot must keep to the side of the slope and ensure that neither he nor his equipment endangers other slope-users.
8. Respect for information
All slope-users must respect information concerning weather conditions, the condition of the slopes and of the snow. They must respect signs and signposting at all times.
9. Assistance
Any person who is a witness or instigator of an accident must give assistance, in particular by giving the alert. Should the need arise, and at the request of the mountain rescuers, he must place himself at their disposal.
10. Identification
Any person who is involved in, or witness to an accident, must identify themselves to the Piste Patrol (or Emergency Service) and to any others involved in the accident.
