10 RECCOMMENDATIONS OF THE AUSTRIAN BOARD OF TRUSTEES FOR ALPINE SAFETY
Dear ski mountaineers on pistes!
Even if on pistes, you act at your own responsibility. You have to assess alpine dangers, in particular avalanche risk on your own. You must carry emergency equipment. Ski pistes are primarily for persons using the lifts. To avoid accidents and conflicts, we ask you to not only to adhere to the FIS code of conduct, but also to the following rules: 1.) Respect warning notices and local regulations.
2.) If a piste or part of a piste is closed, you must not enter it. If piste grooming machines – in particular machines using cable winches are used – or if avalanches are detonated, life-threatening situations might occur. Pistes might be closed for the duration of the works for safety reasons.
3.) Ascend only at the edge of the piste and one after another in a row.
4.) Cross the piste only where it is easy to overlook and with long enough intervals.
5.) Ski on freshly groomed pistes only at the edge. Tracks, which freeze overnights, can have serious impact on the quality of the piste.
6.) Leave the piste by 4:30 p.m. or any other time specified by the lift company.
7.) Make yourself visible. Use a headlamp, reflective clothes etc. in darkness or bad visibility.
8.) If there are ascend routes especially for piste mountaineering tours, use only these.
9.) Do not bring dogs.
10.) Use designated parking spaces and pay possible parking fees.
