Safety on the ski slopes of Val di Fassa

Winter sports such as snowboarding, downhill skiing and cross-country skiing provide a profound tie with the mountains and the nature that surround us, but descents on snow covered pistes, unfortunately hide some dangers. Have fun in the mountains and on the snow, without taking risks: this should be the motto of every prudent skier and snowboarder. One is rarely alone on the pistes. It is fundamental to behave with great responsibility towards oneself and towards others in order prevent risking accidents. The first aid and the alpine rescue service on the slopes are guaranteed by Carabinieri, Police, Financial Police and Foresty Police. Many aid organizations are available in Val di Fassa in case of an accident. Emergency care and health care service are of the highest standard: plenty of pharmacies, medical surgeries and first aid stations. If there were risk of avalanches the slopes could be closed. Download the updated daily bulletin of the open slopes and lifts. As of 1st January 2005, children under 14 years of age are obliged to wear a helmet, both for downhill skiing and for snowboarding. The helmet must meet the approval of European norm UNI EN 1077 and bear the CE certificated mark. The helmet really does help to reduce the consequences of head traumas, and not only in the case of children. In the snowparks (the areas reserved for the freestylers and equipped with jumps, ramps and rails) it is obligatory to wear a helmet, and it is also strongly advised to wear the other protection gear.
