International piste rules

The ten rules of conduct for alpine skiers have been set out by the International Ski Federation and have become the benchmark for the proper conduct of alpine skiers around the world.

Piste Rules


  1. Keep your eyes open: Look before you ski!
  2. Somewhere else, please: Do not stop at unclear points!
  3. Avoid accidents: Always turn off below a group
  4. Wear a helmet: If you got a brain, protect it!
  5. Keep cool: Open the lift bar only in the marked exit area!
  6. Everything under control: Recklessness goes before the fall.
  7. Breaks: Stopping for breaks increases the skiing fun!
  8. Service: Are your edges and bindings okay?
  9. Stop: Never enter closed off terrain.
  10. Warm up: A bit of warm-up reduces the risk of injuries.
