What is the mountain code of conduct?

The Mountain Code of Conduct establishes rules that

  • promote harmonious coexistence for all station users
  • and contribute to reduce the risk of injury.
  • It also applies to snow parks, and the term "ski" includes all types of activities practiced in a ski resort (snowboarding, telemark, etc.).

For his own safety and that of others,

  • every skier must behave with respect
  • and comply with the code of conduct and other rules in force at the stations.
  • Patrollers can intervene with a person in violation of the Code and remove their ski ticket.

1- The golden rule: Control

Stay in control of your speed and direction. Make sure you can stop and avoid any person or obstacle.

2- Priority to people located
further down

Yield the right of way to people further down the road and steer in a direction that ensures their safety.

3- Get out of the way

Stop on a runway only if you can be seen by people above you, and if you are not obstructing the runway.

4- At intersections, give priority to those higher up

Yield to people ahead (higher up) when entering a runway and at intersections.

5- Help first-aiders

If you are involved in or witness an accident, remain at the scene and give your identity to a first-aider.

6- No runaway equipment

Use an appropriate equipment retention system at all times.

7- No drugs or alcohol

Stay off lifts and trails if your ability is impaired by drugs or alcohol.

8- Obey all signs

Obey all signs and warnings, and never venture onto closed trails or off the trail zone.
