About Us

Amie and Louise were motivated to start the Piste X Code after observing several recent tragedies 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’re not widely available or visible enough, in our view. Our initial goal is to increase the awareness of piste safety rules; we feel that this is the first step to safer slopes, which we can all enjoy. However, our campaign doesn’t stop here and we want as many people as possible to be involved.
