Exploration and adventure

  • Respect the trails: make sure you stay on the trails reserved for your activity. Avoid walking on trails marked for skiers in order to preserve their quality. 
  • Respect priorities: let skiers pass, they always have priority. Maintain a safe distance and allow them to pass without hindrance on shared paths. 
  • Make the work of trail-makers easier: if you take a shared circuit, walk to the side to avoid damaging the ski trail. It also helps maintain a harmonious relationship between people who practice different activities. 
  • Don’t obstruct the trail: when you take a break, move to the side of the path to provide room for others. 
  • Pick up your trash: make sure you leave the trails clean by picking up your trash (even the smallest pieces!).

Exploration and adventure

  • Share the territory: honour the right of all to move freely on public territory and remember, game is a collective good that belongs to everyone. 
  • Limit your territory: reasonably restrict the extent of your hiding area and make sure not to block access to roads, bridges, trails, and forest paths. 
  • Share the space: accept the presence of others in the area and prepare to share the forest equitably while respecting everyone’s rights. 
  • Make your presence known: use visible signs to inform other hunters of your activity in the area, thus promoting mutual communication and safety. 
  • Respect hunting zones: respect the hunting rules that apply in these zones, but also the rules specific to the territories you are frequenting.

Exploration and adventure

  • Be informed: before starting, find out about local regulations, make sure you have paid fishing fees and respect catch limits. 
  • Respect others: treat everyone with respect, even in the event of disagreement. This includes respecting the fishing grounds of others and limiting any disturbance. 
  • Before leaving: check if you need to declare your catch and weigh your fish. You’ve already caught on: fishing is not an activity that is improvised – make sure to follow the rules!  
  • Respect the ecosystem: don’t leave any waste behind and make sure you dispose of it properly. It seems obvious, but it’s always worth remembering. 

Rock climbing
Exploration and adventure

  • Respect local codes of behaviour: find out about the specific rules and access conditions of climbing sites and follow them thoroughly. Don’t forget to remain polite and say hello to the people you meet. 
  • Respect access instructions: contribute to the maintenance of climbing sites by paying access fees and respecting private or restricted areas. 
  • Avoid tailgate parties: when you leave your climb, especially in an urban environment, take your car and move far from the residents surrounding the site if you want to enjoy a get-together. 
  • Share the rock: be aware of other climbers, clear routes as soon as possible, and communicate courteously. 
  • Minimize your impact: pick up your waste, stay on the trails and move away from crowded areas when nature calls. Avoid music or drones, their echo can be heard and can jeopardize communication between climbers. 
  • Have a way to communicate: make sure you can communicate and share your exit plan with your group and with the person remaining at base camp.
