Safety on the slopes

Your safety on the slopes is our priority!

At Centre Vorlage, the mountain code of conduct applies to everyone practicing a snow sport. You must also respect any other rules and signs displayed or otherwise indicated by the Centre. Respect the code. Be vigilant. It’s your responsibility!

The coloured symbols displayed near the slopes are key to fully enjoying your day on the slopes. Their shape and colour indicate the difficulty level of the slope.

The website includes a FAQ and safety tips on how to get on, travel on, and get off lifts, as well as general advice on skiing and snowboarding, colouring pages for kids, public service announcements, and more.

It is important to note that during the winter season, the slopes are exclusively intended for sliding sports: skiing, snowboarding, and alpine touring. Snowshoeing, sledding, climbing, and walking are not permitted on the slopes.

There are dedicated hiking, fat biking, and snowshoeing trails for these activities on and around the mountain.

We strongly recommend the use of helmets for all our users. In the case of school outings, wearing a helmet is mandatory. This can reduce the risk and severity of some head injuries, but the best protection is to know and respect your limits. The Quebec Ski Area Association,, offers additional resources about helmets.
