Rules of conduct
- Observe the FIS rules of conduct
- Observe warnings as well as local regulations
- The closure of a piste or part of a piste must be respected. When using piste equipment - especially with winches - or during avalanche blasting, etc., life-threatening situations may arise. Slopes may therefore be closed for the duration of the work for safety reasons
- Use only the designated and marked ascent tracks
- Cross the piste only at marked, clearly visible points and at a sufficient distance from each other
- Use freshly groomed slopes only in the marginal area. Tracks frozen overnight can severely affect the quality of the slopes.
- Evening ski tours can unfortunately not take place until further notice. The slopes must be left by 16:00 hrs.
- Make yourself visible! In darkness or poor visibility please use headlamp, reflective clothing etc.
- Please do not bring dogs on the slopes
- Use designated parking spaces and pay any parking fees (5,- Euro)
