helmets are an optional protection
measure in skiing that are built and designed for multiple impacts. Similar to snowboard helmets, ski
helmets are also insulated for cold weather. This protective gear comes in different styles and types - full shell, short shell, and full face models. It dramatically reduces head trauma when experiencing a fall and can be a life saver especially when venturing off-piste on rocky or woody terrains. A ski
helmet must be properly fitted to provide maximum protection,
performance and comfort.
In addition to providing protection,
some newer helmets come with built-in earpad speakers for listening to portable music devices.
While all snow sports helmets are impact tested and safe, better helmets tend to be more comfortable and have cool features like adjustable vents to allow airflow to make spring skiing more comfortable.Full Article
