10 FIS Rules of the Slopes

1. Consideration towards other Skiers and snowboarders

  • Every skier and snowboarder must conduct themselves in a manner that neither endangers no injures others.

2. Control of speed an skiing style

  • Every skier and snowboarder must ride in a manner appropriate to visivility conditions. He/she must adjust their speed and their riding style to their abilities and the condition of snow, weather, and evironment, as well as to how busy the slopes are.

3. Choice of track

  • A skier or snowboarder approaching from behind must select their track so as to not endanger those skiers or snowboarders in front of them.

4. Passing

  • Passing may take place from above or below, from the right or left, but only at a distance which allows the skier or snowboarder you are passing enough room to complete all of their motions unhindered.

5. Entering, reentering, skiing uphill

  • Every skier and snowboarder who enters a piste, reenters after stopping, or wants to head back up the slope must check above and below to make sure that they are able to do so without endangering themselves or others.

6. Stopping

  • Unless absolutely necessary, a skier or snowboarder must avoid stopping on the slope at bottlenecks or where visibility is restricted. If a skier or snowboarder has fallen, he/she must leave such a place as quickly as possible.

7. Ascent and descent

  • A skier or snowboarder, who either is ascending or descending on foot, must keep to the edge of the slope.

8. Pay attention to signs

  • Every skier and snowboarder must pay attention to markings and signals.

9. Obligation to render asistance

  • In the event of accidents, every skier and snowboarder is obligated to render assistance.
