FIS Rules of Conduct
Respect for the other skiers and snowboarders
Every skier and snowboarder must behave in such a way that he does not endanger or prejudice anyone else.
Control of speed and way of skiing and snowboarding
Every skier and snowboarder must ski or ride by sight, i.e. in control. He must adapt his speed and skiing or riding manner to his personal abilities and to the prevailing terrain, snow and weather conditions as well as the traffic density.
Choice of route
The skier and snowboarder coming from behind must choose his route in such a way that he does not endanger skiers and snowboarders ahead of him.
Overtaking another skier or snowboarder may take place from the top or bottom, from the right or left, but only leaving enough distance that allows the overtaken skier or snowboarder enough space for all his movements.
Entering, starting and moving upwards
Any skier or snowboarder, who wants to enter a ski slope, start after a stop, and or turn or move upwards, must make sure that he can do this without danger to himself and others.
Every skier and snowboarder must avoid the need to stop at a narrow place or where visibility is limited. If a skier or snowboarder falls, he must vacate such a place as soon as possible.
Climbing or descending by foot
A skier or snowboarder who ascends or descends by foot must use the edge of the piste.
Observe the signs and markers
Every skier and snowboarder must observe the signs and markers.
In the case of accidents, every skier and snowboarder must provide assistance.
Every skier and snowboarder, whether a witness or a participant, whether responsible or not, must exchange names and addresses in the event of an accident.
