Observing the signs and direction of travel

Every cross-country ski trail user must follow the markings and signposts. On cross-country ski runs, please follow advised directions.

Choice of lane

On double or multiple tracks, skiing is allowed in all tracks.

Overtaking

You may overtake from the right or the left. The skier in front does not have to vacate the track for overtaking.

Controlling speed and manner of skiing depending on conditions

Every trail user must adapt their speed and style of skiing to their ability as well as weather and terrain conditions. You should always keep sufficient distance from the trail user in front of you.

Keep cross-country ski trail clear

Step out of the track if you are stopping. A trail user who has fallen must vacate the trail as quickly as possible.
