Would you ride a bicycle in traffic or forty miles an hour down a hill without a bicycle helmet? Of course not. The statistics have proven time and again that bicycle helmets are as essential and necessary as seatbelts or airbags. Bicycle helmets are a law for riders under twelve years old.
Because snowboarding and skiing are sports done in the snow and away from other vehicle traffic, the statistics are less staggering, but should be taken as seriously. Only 15-24% of skiers and snowboarders wear helmets on the slopes, yet there are still unnecessary deaths each year.
Don't let yourself or your child fall victim to the invincibility mindset some dangerous skiers and riders have. Get a snowboard helmet.
