Safety rules for alpine skiing

Safety on the slopes

Brokke Alpine Centre expects that visitors obey these rules. Violations of them will lead to confiscation of ski pass and exclusion from the premises.

Off-piste safety

Brokke Alpine Centre has five groomed descents, but there is also a large and exciting off-piste area in the forest.

Skiing and snowboarding outside the groomed piste network entails a greater hazard; with rocks, cliffs and avalanche risk. Such activities must take place at your own responsibility. Respect the signs and obstructions.

If you go off-piste skiing, you have to make your own safety assessment of the chosen route.

Chairlift

In case of snowfall, the seats of the chairlift will gather snow throughout the day, and your clothes may get wet. If you find that uncomfortable, we recommend the T-bar lift.

If the personnel should remove snow from the seats when the lift is in operation, the speed would have to be reduced, and the trip to the top would consequently take more time for those who are eager to hit the slopes.

Outside opening hours

It is not allowed to use the slopes outside the opening hours due to snow production, grooming and inspection. If people stay on the slopes during maintenance work, the consequences may be fatal. Respect the signs and obstructions.

We wish all our guests a safe and nice skiing or snowboarding experience!
