Ski Patrollers Advice

Here are a few professional tips to stay safe in the mountains:

Skiers and snowboarders, for your safety, do not stop below moguls or in the breaks in the slope

Before starting on a run, make sure that it corresponds to your personal skiing level

Fatigue is the cause of many accidents: stay alert

If you witness an accident and you raise the alert, clearly specify the name of the slope, the marker number and the type of injuries

Respect the closing times

After the runs are closed, snow grooming machines with hidden cables take care of the maintenance

For obvious safety reasons, we remind you that sledging, and skiing is strictly prohibited on the roads and village streets

Any activity occuring outside of the marked runs is your sole responsibility.
