■ Off-Slope No Trespassing

'Outside the ski area boundary' of the Arai Snow Resort is a hazardous terrain.
No avalanche control measures are in place here, and no rescue operations have been carried out.
This area is difficult to return to due to the outward facing ridge, steep slopes and complex ridge formations.
The area is off-limits due to the need for extreme caution.



While it is difficult to prevent injuries and accidents altogether, these ten rules,
which alert you to what to expect on the ski and snowboard slopes and introduce basic coping strategies,
can help increase safety awareness and prevent injuries and accidents before they happen.

1. Respect for others
2. Control of speed & skiing or snowboarding
3. Choice of route
4. Overtaking
5. Entering, starting & moving upwards
6. Stopping on the slope
7. Climbing & descending on foot
8. Respect for signs & markings
9. Assistance
10. Identification

■ Beyond the ropes.

Are you aware of the dangers lurking on the 'unmanaged slopes' on the other side of the rope?
Your safety depends on you.

The environment on and off the piste is very different.
A ski area is a place that provides a safe riding environment for a wide variety of skiers,
whereas the mountain is undeveloped and untouched by nature.
Understanding and clearly distinguishing these differences is the first step towards your safety.
Make sure you understand this important point, and enjoy your skiing safely.
