Be insured

Check that you are insured on the slopes. When you buy your ski pass, you have the option of taking out "Carré Neige" insurance.
To ensure that your stay remains a pleasure, it is also essential to respect the safety instructions of the ski area !


On the chairlifts :

  • Be careful and prepare yourself for boarding.

  • If you have a backpack, put it in front of you !

  • Be aware of other passengers, especially children.

  • Sit well back in the seat and wait for the arrival to raise the guardrail.


On ski lifts :

  • Remove your wrist straps and hold your ski poles in one hand.

  • Let yourself be carried to the top of the slopes without making any turns on the way up.

  • Move away from the finish quickly.

  • In case of bad boarding on a ski lift, let go immediately.


On the slopes :

  • Respect the signs on the slopes

  • Watch out for skiers downhill (they may not see you coming, it is up to you to anticipate ;) )

  • Watch out for disabled skiers: make sure you don't get in the way of disabled skiers.

  • Control your speed: adapt your trajectory and your speed according to the difficulty of the slope, the state of the snow, your visibility...

  • Take breaks in dedicated areas: do not park in narrow passages and remain visible to other skiers.
