Ski Helmets

For those of us who skiied as children in the 60's, 70's, 80's or earlier, seeing someone on the slopes with a helmet was a rarity, unless you were watching ski jumping or competitive racing. Today, however, with an increased awareness on safety and several visible accidents showing just how quickly a severe head injury can occur, helmets are becoming commonplace, especially for children.

As with any ski product, fit and sizing is critical for safety when it comes to helmets. Be sure that whatever products you may purchase or rent are the correct size for the skier.

We worked with the National Ski Areas Association's (NSAA) Lids on Kids campaign to provide our readers with an overview of helmet buying, usage, and FAQ's.
