Safety in Hafjell

In Hafjell,  we put safety first for you to enjoy your day skiing at the fullest. Please see our safety rules for skiing in our resort.


10 Safety rules

1. Responsibility to avoid injury

Never ski in a manner that puts you or others at risk of injury.

2. Safe speed 

Adapt speed and skiing technique to your skiing ability, terrain, snow conditions and traffic.

3. Ski in the right direction

When you're coming from above, you must give way to the skiers/boarders in front of you.

4. Keep distance when overtaking 

Keep your distance when overtaking, so that the other skier/boarder has enough space. Skiing straight down the hill is strictly prohibited, except during organized training.

5. Set off carefully

Always check - both uphill and downhill - that the slopes are clear before you set off skiing/boarding.

6. Stopping in a slope

If you have to stop, do it in places where others can easily see and overtake you. If you fall – get out of the way as quickly as possible.

7. Walking in the slopes

The outer edges of the slopes must be used when walking - especially when visibility is bad.

8. Comply with all signs, rules and instructions

Rules and instructions on the slopes are there for your well-being and that of others. Follow them!

9. Help others

You must help others in the event of an accident.

10. Identification 

If you are involved in an accident, you must give your name and address.


  • It is prohibited to stay in the ski resort outside of opening hours. It can be life-threatening because of snow production and snow grooming of the slopes. Alpine skiing is associated with a certain danger. Drugs and skiing do not fit together. Violation of the alpine safety rules may result in exclusion from the resort.
  • Use a helmet for your own safety!
