Responsibility Code on Ski Slopes

Alpine skiing and snowboarding, like many other sports, involve high level of risk. The Rules of the International Ski Federation (Fédération Internationale de Ski) FIS (White Code of Alpine Skier and Snowboarder) is an ideal model of behavior for skiers or snowboarders who think not only of their own safety during skiing, but also of those riding nearby on the slope.

FIS rules apply to all skiers and snowboarders. Responsible skier or snowboarder, who is aware of gravity of possible situations must know and follow these rules. If they fail to do so, legislative bodies may consider their conduct in an accident as violation of civil and criminal law.

Rule #1. All skiers and snowboarders must respect each other
  • A skier or snowboarder must behave in the way that does not endanger themselves or others around.
  • FIS comment: Skiers and snowboarders are responsible not only for their behavior but also for their defective equipment.
Rule #2. All skiers and snowboarders must control the speed and direction of movement
  • They must adapt their speed and manner of skiing or snowboarding to their personal ability, density of traffic, snow and slope.
  • FIS comment: Collisions usually happen because skiers or snowboarders moving too fast, lose control of the situation, virtually don’t notice those around on the slope while enjoying skiing and snowboarding.
  • In crowded areas or in places where visibility is reduced, skiers and snowboarders must move slowly especially at the edge of a steep slope, at the bottom of a slope and within areas surrounding ski lifts.
Rule #3. Choice of route
  • A skier or snowboarder coming from behind must choose their route in such a way that they do not endanger skier or snowboarder ahead.
  • FIS comment: Collisions usually happen because skiers or snowboarders moving too fast, lose control of the situation, virtually don’t notice those around on the slope while enjoying skiing and snowboarding.
  • FIS comment: Skiing and snowboarding are free activity sports, where everyone may move where and as they want, provided that they abide by these rules and adapt their skiing and snowboarding to their personal ability and to the prevailing conditions on the slope. The skier or snowboarder in front has priority. The skier or snowboarder moving behind another in the same direction must keep sufficient distance between himself and other skier, so that the one in front has enough space to make all their movements freely and even to fall dawn.
Rule #4. Overtaking
  • Overtaking can be done from above or below, and to the right of to the left provided that skier or snowboarder leaves enough space for the overtaken person to make any movement.
  • FIS comment: A skier or snowboarder overtaking another skier or snowboarder is wholly for completing that maneuver in the way that doesn’t cause any difficulty or life threatening situations to the skier of snowboarder being overtaken. This responsibility remains with them until overtaking maneuver is complete. This rule applies even when overtaking a stationary skier.
Rule #5. Entering, starting and moving upwards
  • A skier or snowboarder entering a marked run, starting again after stopping or moving upwards on the slopes must look up and down the slopes that he can do so without endangering themselves or others.
  • FIS comment: Experience proves that joining a slopes or starting again after stopping is the source of accidents. It is absolutely essential that a skier or snowboarder finding themselves in this situation enters the slope safely and without causing an obstruction of danger to themselves or others. When they have started skiing or snowboarding again – even slowly – they have the benefit of Rule 3 as against faster skier or snowboarder coming from above or behind.
  • Carving skis and snowboards allow their users to carve and turn upwards on the slopes. Hence, they move opposite to the general downhill traffic. They must therefore make sure in time that they can do so without endangering themselves and others.
Rule #6. Stopping on a slope
  • Unless absolutely necessary, a skier or snowboarder must avoid stopping on slope in narrow places or where visibility is restricted. If the skier or snowboarder falls in such place, they must move and clear of the slope as soon as possible. If the skier or snowboarder falls but cannot get up on their own, the skier or snowboarder descending after him/her is obliged to stop and help to clear of the slope as far as it is possible (that is, if there is no contraindication to aggravate the injuries during the movement of his/her body).
  • FIS comment: Stops must be made at the side of the slope. One must not stop in narrow places or where it is difficult to be seen from above.
Rule #7. Climbing and descending on foot
  • A skier or snowboarder climbing or descending on foot must keep to the side of the slope.
  • FIS comment: agar uchish ishtirokchilaridan biri asosiy oqimga qarshi yursa, u avtomatik ravishda chang'ichilar va snoubordchilar uchun to'siq yaratadi. Oyoq izlari qiyalik yuzasini deformatsiya qiladi va uchish ishtirokchilari uchun kutilmagan xavflarni keltirib chiqaradi.
Rule #8. All skiers and snowboarders must follow the signs and markings
  • A skier or snowboarder is required to be attentive to signs and markings.
  • FIS comment: Each slope has its own color: black, red, blue and green, depending on the difficulty level. A skier or snowboarder is free to choose the slope he/she prefer. Also, slopes have other signs indicating the direction, warning of danger and/or closing of the slope. All warning signs are designed to ensure the safety of skiers and snowboarders in Amirsoy Resort or another ski resort.
Rule #9. All skiers and snowboarders are obliged to assist in the case of an accident
  • In the case of an accident, every skier or snowboarder is obliged to provide assistance to the victim.
  • FIS comment: This is a basic principle for all sportsmen, they must assist the injured in the case of an accident. First aid should be provided immediately and instantly reported to the relevant services, and the place where the accident occurred should be fenced off to warn other skiers and snowboarders. FIS hopes that all occurrences and violations of rules of the movement on the slopes will be considered in accordance with legislation that is close to analysis of accidents. Accordingly, appropriate penalties will be imposed on violators.
Rule #10. Identification
  • All skiers and snowboarders as well as witnesses, regardless of their involvement in an accident or incident, must exchange contact details, names and/or addresses after the incident.
  • FIS comment: The presence of witnesses is very important for a proper account of what happened. Therefore, everyone should remember that he/she is obliged to provide information about what happened. The report of the rescue service, photographs, are essential in determination of civil and criminal liability.
