The first to know about avalanche warnings

Safety first – especially if you love off-piste riding and the backcountry! Please remember that only marked and open slopes are supervised by the cable car management and rescue services, making it all the more important to check avalanche warnings as well as snow and weather reports before you go off-piste!

Slope rules: The ABC of mountain fun

No matter if you’re driving a car or skiing – in both cases it’s important to stick to certain regulations to ensure smooth and safe traffic. In case of skiing, please remember the following code of conduct for winter sports athletes:

The International Ski Federation’s FIS slope regulations:

  • Respect for others: Watch out for others on the slope so that nobody is endangered.
  • Control of speed and manner of skiing: Adapt your speed and manner of skiing to your personal ability and prevailing conditions of terrain, snow and weather!
  • Choice of route: If you’re coming from behind, choose your route in such a way as not to endanger others ahead.
  • Entering, starting and moving upwards: If you enter a marked run, start again after stopping or move upwards on the slope, look up and down the slope to check for others you could potentially endanger.
  • Respect for signs and assistance: Just like on the streets, skiers must respect all signs and markings on the slope. In case of emergency, every winter sports athlete is obliged to assist.
  • Identification: Whether you caused it, witnessed it or assisted at it, every winter sports athlete is obliged by law to give his personal details following an accident.
