Code of conduct on the slopes
To ensure you have a wonderful skiing holiday in Saalbach, we kindly ask you to respect the Code of Conduct or Skiway Code for the ski areas.
Please read and observe the general rules of the slopes in the Skicircus Saalbach-Hinterglemm outlined below.
1. Consideration for others
Ski or snowboard in such a manner that does not endanger or harm others on the slope.
2. Control your speed and riding style
Adapt your speed and riding style to your ability and the terrain and weather conditions.
3. Track choice
The skier or snowboarder coming from behind must choose a track that does not endanger the skier or snowboarder in front of them.
You are permitted to overtake from above or below as well as from right or left as long as you leave enough space for the other skier or snowboarder.
5. Entering, starting off and moving uphill
Every skier or snowboarder entering a ski run or traversing a ski terrain must make sure that he or she can do this without endangering himself or herself or others.
6. Lingering on the slope
Avoid stopping at narrow or blind spots on a slope if you don't have to. A fallen skier must clear their place as soon as possible. Snowboarders sometimes like to sit down, but please only sit at the edge of the piste where you can be easily seen.
7. Ascent and descent
Ascending skiers or snowboarders (e.g. ski tourers or winter hikers) are only permitted to use the edge of a slope. The same applies to skiers or snowboarders descending on foot.
8. Follow the signs
Always follow the markings and signs in the ski area.
9. What to do in the event of an accident
In the event of an accident, everyone is obliged to provide first aid. If you are rendering assistance, make sure you warn other skiers and snowboarders of the accident site (make a cross with two skis) and contact the valley station or mountain rescue
10. Identification requirement in the event of an accident
Every skier or snowboarder, regardless of whether he or she is a witness or party involved, must provide their personal details in the event of an accident.
Wearing a ski helmet is mandatory for children up to the age of 15. However, wearing a helmet is also strongly recommended for all adults.
