Consideration for winter hikers or other winter sports enthusiasts
Every cross-country ski trail user must behave in a manner that does not harm or endanger others at all times. Particularly on the valley cross-country ski trail, winter hikers or other winter sports enthusiasts looking for relaxation can be expected in certain sections. Please take this into account and adjust the speed accordingly.
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.
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.
If encountering oncoming traffic, each party has to give way to the right. On downhill sections with only one track, the ascending skier has to give way to the downhill skier.
Using your ski poles
Keep your ski poles close to your body when overtaking, being overtaken or on encounters.
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.
Conduct in case of an accident
Everyone is obliged to give assistance in case of an accident.
Disclosure in case of accidents
Reporting the accident: everyone must disclose their personal details in case of an accident, regardless of whether or not they are responsible, a witness or directly involved.
