Tech yourself the important slope rules! This applies both skiers and snowboarders
Responsibillity to avoid damage
You have to behave in such a way that you are not a danger to yourself or others. You will at all times have control of your ski-/ snowboard and you have duty to ensure your equiptment does not damage any other property or people.
Adapt your speed
You must adjust your speed to your own abilities and think about the weather, snow conditions and terrain you are on.
Duty to give way
If you’re skiing behind anyone, you are responsible for ensuring there is no risk of collision.
A skier or snowboarder may overtake another skier/snowboarder if he/she leaves enough space for the overtaken skier/snowboarder to make any voluntary or involuntary movement. Race training is forbidden unless it is organized training within a club.
Entering slopes, starting and moving upwards in the slope
If you ski into, or turn upwards in the slopes, you have to make sure that this happens without any danger for yourself or others. The same applies for starting and stopping
Unless it is absolutely necessary, you must avoid stopping in narrow places, and places with limited vision in the descent. If you fall in a place described, you must try to move away from the slope as soon as possible.
Walking in the slopes
If you walk by foot in the slopes, you must walk by the outer edge of the slopes
Respect signs and markings
Follow signs, markings and instructions.
