The Piste X Code is a not-for-profit, bilingual slope safety campaign. We aim to introduce new skiers and snowboarders to the established rules of the piste, while reminding experienced mountain-goers of their safety responsibilities.
Our Piste X Code (pronounced “piste cross code” like the “green cross code”) campaign launched in 2022 following a tragic incident on ski slope in the French Alps; a little girl lost her life after she was involved in a collision with another skier. Since then, and during our own time in the mountains with our own children, we’ve observed increasingly poor on-piste etiquette, resulting in frequent near-misses, collisions, injuries and worse. The Piste X Code is a set of eight rules designed to keep skiers and snowboarders safe on the piste.
