Rules of behavior on the ski slopes of the Kopaonik ski center

The rules of behavior on the ski resort of the Kopaonik ski center apply to skiers, boarders and everyone in the ski resort area.

Respect for others
Users of ski runs must behave in such a manner that they do not impose danger or damage to others with their conduct or their equipment.

Controlling speed and behavior
Each ski run user must adapt their speed and behavior to their own abilities, as well as general conditions on the runs and weather conditions, the state of the snow, and traffic density. If a skier skies or snowboards at a run that is not appropriate for his skiing skills, they are doing so at their own risk.

The choice of direction by the one above
The ski run user who is on a higher position is able to chose the direction and must do so in the manner that will be safe for all the persons below, that is, in front of him/her. Due to the specific manner of snowboarding and reduced angle of visibility, boarders must check the space to their left and to their right whenever changing direction.

Overtaking can be done from the right or from the left, but must always be done in the manner which allows the skier to predict the direction of the person they are overtaking.

At the crossing of paths and when leaving
After stops or at intersections, each user must make sure that they can start without imposing danger to themselves or others by looking up and down.

Every user must avoid stopping on narrow and impenetrable passages, and in the event of a fall, must clear the track as soon as possible.

Climbing and descending on foot
Those forced to climb or come down the run on foot must use the border of the run and take care that neither they nor their equipment imposes danger to others.

Respecting information, markings and signals
A user must pay attention to information, weather conditions, the condition of the runs and snow. Also, they must respect markings and signals on the runs.

Each person witnessing an accident or being involved in an accident must help by giving alarm signal. In case of necessity, and upon the lifeguard’s request, the witness or the person being involved must be at his/her disposal.

Each person witnessing an accident or being involved in one must inform rescue services of their identity.

The use of snowmobiles is strictly prohibited on the ski resort, except for official purposes.

Protective helmet
The use of a protective helmet is mandatory for children under the age of 12, and it is also recommended for other skiers and boarders.

Skiing outside the ski area
Skiing outside the ski area and on ungroomed terrain is at your own risk and will result in annulling the ski pass.

The basic FIS rules and signage on the ski resort that apply to skiers also apply to boarders.

The user of the ski resort must not use the runs if under the influence of alcohol, illicit drugs or a psychoactive medication, i.e. substances that adversely affect their abilities.
