FIS rules

The International Ski Federation (FIS) has defined 10 rules so that everyone can practice snow sports on the slopes with pleasure and in safety.

  1. Do not endanger or prejudice others.
  2. Move in control. Adapt your manner of skiing or snowboarding and speed to your ability and to the general conditions on the mountain. 
  3. Do not impede the route of the skier and snowboarder in front of you. 
  4. Leave a wide berth when overtaking.
  5. Look up the slopes each time before starting and moving upwards.
  6. Only stop at the edge of the piste or where you can be seen easily.
  7. When climbing up or down, keep to the side of the piste.
  8. Obey all signs and markings.
  9. Provide help and alert the rescue service (in case of accident).
  10. All persons involved in an accident including witnesses must exchange names and addresses.


Slope users are required to abide by these rules. Snowboarders must also respect 3 additional rules.


Authorised equipments on slopes and lifts

The resort is primarily known for its slopes and itineraries but is also accessible to walkers and different motorised devices.

Perhaps you are wondering which areas are accessible to pedestrians (the good news is that you can go and admire the Mont-Fort on foot!). Maybe you want to know if you can take your four-legged friend with you. Or perhaps you want to bring your snowscoot?
You’ll find all the relevant information about the lifts and slopes below.

If you don’t find what you are looking for, we’ll be happy to answer your questions.
