FIS Rules of the Slopes

1. Consideration for other skiers
Every skier must behave in such a way as to not endanger fellow skiers.
2. Control of Speed and Skiing Style
Don’t ski faster than visibility allows. You must adjust your speed and style to your personal ability levels and the terrain, snow and weather conditions, as well as to how busy the slopes are.
3. Choosing the right line
The skier approaching from behind must choose a line that does not endanger the skier in front of him.
4. Passing
Skiers can pass from above or below, from the right or left, but always leaving sufficient distance that the skier being passed has plenty of room to complete his own motion.
5. Entering and Re-entering
Every skier who is either entering or re-entering the slope must first look up and down the hill to ensure that he can do so without endangering himself or others.
6. Stopping
Every skier should avoid unnecessarily stopping their run at narrow points or where visibility is restricted. If you have fallen in such a place, you must vacate the area as quickly as possible.
7. Ascending/Descending the Mountain
Skiers ascending the mountain or descending on foot must use the edge of the ski slope.
8. Paying Attention to Signs
Every skier must obey all signs, markings and signals.
9. Emergency Assistance
If there is an accident, everyone is obliged to provide assistance as necessary.
10. Personal I.D.
Every skier, whether purely a witness or involved in the incident, is required to provide personal identification in the event of an accident.
