Amie and Louise were driven to start the Piste X Code after recent tragedy’s on the slopes. So many accidents are completely avoidable and we felt like it was time to act.
Many people aren’t aware that piste rules exist. They are not widely available or visible enough. Therefore, our initial goal is to increase awareness of piste safety rules as we feel that this is the first step to safer slopes. However, our campaign won’t stop here and we want as many people as possible to be involved.
