In the old days, most skiers wore wool beanies or caps. Not only were these hats itchy and uncomfortable, but they didn’t protect anyone’s head from bumps, scrapes or falls.
Today, the majority of skiers and snowboarders wear helmets. Helmets are lightweight, comfortable and warm. Many resorts require them for children in ski and ride school. Helmets are a great idea for everyone.
If you don’t have one, rent one (along with some goggles) from the resort rental shop.
