FIS rules of conduct
The FIS rules of the International Ski Federation FIS are worldwide rules of conduct that apply and must be observed in the ski areas and thus for all winter sports enthusiasts. The rules exist to prevent accidents and mutual danger.
1. Respect each other
Skier and snowboarder must always behave in such a way that others are not endangered or prejudiced others. Check your own equipment in advance to make sure there are no defects.
3. Choose your route carefully
Who rides in front of us has the right of way. Accordingly, the route must be chosen in such a way that there is no danger for skiers or snowboarders ahead.
5. Entering, starting and moving upwards
If you enter a downhill run, start again after a stop, or want to swing uphill, make sure that you can do it without danger to yourself and others.
7. Ascent & Descent
Ski tourers ascending or skiers and snowboarder descending on foot must walk along the edge of the slope to avoid to endanger to others.
In case of accidents, everyone is obliged to provide assistance (for example, first-aid services to the best of their knowledge and conscience and communication with the rescue services)
10. ID required
Skier and snowboarder must be able to identify themselves in the event of an accident - whether as a party or as a witness.
