1. Respect for the other skiers

Every skier must behave in such a way that he does not endanger or harm anyone else.

2. Mastery of speed and driving style

Every skier has to ski on sight. He has to adapt his speed and driving style to his ability and the terrain, snow and weather conditions as well as the traffic density.

3. Choice of lane

The skier coming from behind must choose his lane so that he does not endanger skiers skiing in front of him.

4. Overtake

Overtaking is allowed from above or below, from right or left, but always only at a distance that leaves the overtaken skier enough space for all his movements.

5. Drive in and start

Every skier who wants to enter a ski run or start again after a stop has to make sure up and down that he can do this without risk to himself and others.

6. Stop

Every skier must avoid being in tight or confusing places on a descent without need. A fallen skier must clear such a place as soon as possible.

7. Ascent and descent

A skier who climbs or descends on foot must use the edge of the descent.

8. Pay attention to the signs

Every skier must observe the marking and the signaling.

9. Assistance

In the event of an accident, every skier is obliged to provide assistance.

10. Duty of identification

Every skier, whether a witness or a participant, whether responsible or not, must provide his personal details in the event of an accident.
