Skiing and snowboarding is a pleasure, provided you have mastered the technique, you are using the right equipment and don’t exceed a sensible speed-limit. This allows you to react appropriately to the unforeseen, avoid unnecessary dangerous situations and uncertainties on the ski slopes and in the terrain. Self-responsibility and reason are the key words to make this winter sport a true experience.
A skier or snowboarder must move in control. He must adapt his speed and manner of skiing or snowboarding to his personal ability and to the prevailing conditions of terrain, snow and weather as well as to the density of traffic.
A skier or snowboarder may overtake another skier or snowboarder above or below and to the right or to the left provided that he leaves enough space for the overtaken skier or snowboarder to make any voluntary or involuntary movement.
Unless absolutely necessary, a skier or snowboarder must avoid stopping on the piste in narrow places or where visibility is restricted. After a fall in such a place, a skier or snowboarder must move clear of the piste as soon as possible.
