SAFETY ON THE SLOPES
is everyone's contribution
The development of ski safety at Tahko is taken as a daily task. Our professional staff takes care of safety at the slopes, at venues and lifts. Proper slope behavior and rule observation is everyone's duty. When everybody follows the same rules, the slope area is safe and it is pleasant to be there. The staff and the ski instructors will help and guide you with pleasure.
People in orange vests moving on the slopes are our Ski Patrol staff. If you have any questions or in case of any help, you can freely ask them.
Make your day on the slopes safe and untroubled. You can read the slope rules here.
Please remember also the following:
When making after-ski plans, keep in mind that using the slopes under the influence of alcohol/drugs is forbidden. People under the influence of alcohol endanger themselves and others. Lifts can be used only with the equipment meant for skiing or snowboarding. The staff have the right to cancel a ski-pass of a person who does not follow the rules.
