Cross-country skiing
Gliding sports

  • Control your speed: adapt your speed to the conditions and traffic on the trail. Avoid steep descents, especially if your technique is at a beginner level.  
  • Respect priorities: let the fastest cross-country skiers pass and give priority to those going down the trail. On shared trails, pay attention to the signs around you. 
  • Keep to the right: always keep to the right on the path to allow safe overtaking. Don’t forget, zigzagging is only used when moving from one double-track to another. 
  • Announce when your overtaking: before passing another skier, announce your intention by saying, “On your left”. Also signal any sudden stop or change of direction. 
  • Follow local rules: Familiarize yourself with site-specific regulations and follow them carefully. Find out about the trails reserved for different activities.

Gliding sports

  • Before you take off: make sure the area you are launching into is open to snow-kiting. If it’s private land, politely ask permission to be there and find out about its provisions for enjoying the sport in this space.  
  • Practice with caution: establish a safe distance from other people on site. If an incident occurs, keep calm, and approach the situation courteously. 
  • Think about others: When you’re not using your equipment, keep it organized and stored away to give others space. Be careful when launching or landing your kite. 
  • Avoid risky areas: the entrance of rivers or streams, currents and salt water are places where water might not be completely frozen over. Be careful of thin ice, barbed wire or fences which may be difficult to see. 
  • Ride the courtesy wave: if you think you can ride wherever and whenever you want, remember that with snow-kiting, it’s your courtesy and your respect that make you a legend.
