Q: Will I be safer if I wear a helmet?
A: Helmets can make a difference in reducing or preventing injury from falls or other impacts. They are most effective at slower speeds. Be sure that your helmet properly fits.
Q: Are there helmets specifically designed for snow sports or can I wear a bicycle helmet?
A: Ski and snowboard helmets are specifically designed for skiing and snowboarding usage. Wearing another sport’s helmets, such as a bicycle helmet, may not afford you adequate protection.
Ski and snowboard helmets are insulated for cold weather and bicycle helmets provide more ventilation than ski helmets. A ski and snowboard helmet offers better protection on impact rather than wearing a bicycle helmet on the slopes.
The National Ski Area Association encourages everyone to wear a helmet on the slopes and to educate yourself about a helmet’s benefits and limitations.
