It is your responsibility
- Signal the place. Protect the injured person by indicating the place to other skiers: place their skis in the sign of a cross a few metres above where the injured person is lying.
- Warn the resort staff. You can do this either by calling the emergency number or by asking another skier to go to the nearest installation, ski lift or the Control Tower.
- Help the injured person. Stay with the injured person until help arrives.
Do not on any account attempt to move the injured person. Allow the injured person to find a more comfortable position by themselves, and under no condition remove their boots. Reassure the injured person and keep them warm.
Remember that in these cases the best help you can give the injured person is to inform quickly and accurately of what has happened.
The resort has a specially trained Help Service to administer first aid and assistance to injured people.
- Consult the slope report and weather forecast every day which is provided for you by the resort.
- Skiing is a sport which takes place in a privileged environment. Please show maximum respect the nature around you.
- Before beginning your day’s skiing, make sure you have all the right equipment you will need for your activity with you, and that it is in good condition.
- Always ski according to your technical ability, expertise and fitness level. Bear in mind that factors such as weather conditions, state of the snow, tiredness level, equipment and other skiers can influence the way you ski.
- Skiing is a high mountain sport and in the open air where weather conditions can change suddenly.
- For your safety, heed the resort’s signs and adapt your behaviour accordingly at all times.
- Off piste skiing means going into an area which the resort has neither prepared nor signalled. Off piste skiing is always done under the sole responsibility of the skier who chooses to do it. Make sure you know the snow conditions and risk of avalanches.
- Snow cannons, pylons and other artificial structures are a necessary part of the ski resort. Always keep your speed and route under control so that you are able to avoid them.

- Always reduce your speed when you find children on your descent path.
