Snowshoes - Code of conduct & securityBack
• I ask about any dangerous areas; winter paths are very different from summer paths
• I choose an itinerary suitable for my physical condition. I inquire about the route chosen and I do not go alone too far and not for too long
I keep updated on weather conditions and avalanche risk
• I use suitable equipment and clothing in good condition. I bring hot drinks and food
• I use safety and orientation equipment suitable for the difficulty of my trek (map, pharmacy, survival blanket, rope, «ARVA», snow probe, shovel…)
• Fauna: do not follow animal tracks
• Flora: young trees and vegetation
• Keep sites clean and quiet: one track is enough for a whole group
• I leave ski slopes to skiers, I inquire about winter activity regulations, I respect other users’ need for quietness
• Mountain guides, Ski patrols, local police forces, civil security, local weather forecast Park rangers, Natural Reserve Guards, etc
