Safe nordic skiing in the Dolomites

Respect other skiers: Please always ensure that you don’t endanger or cause injury to others.

Observe signs and notices: Pay attention to the signs; only ski in the designated direction and with the prescribed technique.

Stay right: On double or multiple tracks, stay in the rightmost track. Members of groups ski one after the other in the right track. The same applies to skating.

Overtaking: Overtaking is permitted left or right in a free track or outside the track. If safely possible, the skier at the front should give way.

Speed and distance: Adjust your speed according to your ability, the terrain, number of visitors and visibility. Keep a sufficient distance from the skier ahead of you.

Oncoming traffic: Swerve to the right. In single-track uphill/downhill sections, downhill skiers have priority.

Use of poles: When overtaking, being overtaken and during encounters, keep the poles close to the body.

Keeping the track free: In the event of a fall or when stopped, please leave the track.

Assistance: Everyone present is required to assist with accidents. Witnesses or persons involved must provide their personal details.

Times: Skiing on the trails is not permitted outside opening hours.

Own risk: Use of the ski track is at your own risk.
