Slope safety- FOR SMOOTH INTERACTION ON THE SLOPES
- The responsibility of each and every winter sports fan requires reasonable behaviour on the skiing and sled runs in order to neither put themselves nor others at risk.
- Above all, this means adjusting the speed to the area, visibility and snow conditions and particularly to your own skills so that you never lose control.
- Watching out for weaker skiers and slower sledders should be your top priority.
- The piste patrol team supervises, checks and secures only the marked and opened ski and sled runs during the operating hours of the respective lift. Last check at 4.30 pm.
- Do not ski in forests, as young trees and wild animals may come to grief. Sledding and walking on ski pistes is prohibited.
- Please observe the display panels and signs at the lift stations as well as in the greater area.
- Skiing and sledding accidents are subject to a report; assistance and identification are obligatory (also applies to witnesses).
- Registration offices for accidents are in all lift and Summit Stations. In the interest of the injured parties we ask you to properly specify the site of the accident.
