In South Tyrol, new rules apply to skiers this winter. In some cases, it is even forbidden to stop at certain points.

Bolzano - New rules for skiing in South Tyrol in Italy: If you are planning a holiday there this winter to spend it on two skis, you should inform yourself in advance. According to a new provincial law, some new regulations apply on the slopes, as also reported by the Neue Südtiroler Tageszeitung.

Prohibition for skiers in South Tyrol: You are no longer allowed to stop at bottlenecks

According to a resolution of the state parliament of July 23, 2023, one of the regulations concerns overtaking. Accordingly, winter sports enthusiasts are obliged "to make sure that there is sufficient space and visibility before overtaking, always at a sufficient distance so that those overtaken are not obstructed." That sounds familiar so far.

South Tyrol: Judge gives workshop for carabinieri about new ski rules

The new rules coincide with an amendment to the Ski Slope Act, which was passed in 2010. The law has now been adapted to the amended State Act of 2021. The amendment introduced compulsory insurance for skiers and new regulations for ski slope operators. If you do not have insurance, you will have to pay a fine.

To ensure that the new rules do not remain just paper tigers, a judge took the time to explain the new regulations to the carabinieri in a workshop. This took place partly on the slopes. The ski law expert of the Regional Court, Judge Carlo Busato, instructed officials who are on duty on the slopes in 27 ski resorts in South Tyrol.

Last winter, they had a lot to do with 6000 checks and 4000 rescue missions. According to Oberts Raffaele Riviloa, the piste service is the main activity of the carabinieri from December to April. The ski season has also begun in Bavaria thanks to the onset of winter. (cgsc)
