Ten rules for cross-country skiers

The FIS (Federation Internationale de Ski) has issued ten rules for cross-country skiers:

  • Every cross-country skier must behave in a way that does not endanger or injure anyone.
  • Signs and warning signs must be observed, and you must ski in the direction indicated on the cross-country trails.
  • On double and multi-lane tracks, you must run on the right-hand lane. Cross-country skiers in a group must run on the right-hand lane one after the other.
  • Passing is allowed to the right or left on the clear lane or off the lane. The front runner does not have to leave the lane, but must retreat if he/she considers that he/she can do so without danger.
  • At encounters, each skier must keep to the right.
  • When passing or being passed by another skier, we need to keep our poles close to our bodies.
  • Especially on steep trails, each skier needs to adapt his/her speed and movement to the terrain, terrain conditions, traffic density and visibility. He must also maintain a sufficient safety distance to the skier in front of him. If necessary, he/she must fall on purpose, if that means avoiding a collision.
  • Anyone who stops should get off the lane. A skier who has fallen should leave the track as soon as possible.
  • Everyone has a duty to help in the event of an accident.
  • Everyone, whether an eyewitness or a person involved in an accident, must give their personal details in the event of an accident, whether they are at fault or not.
