Ski Company Considers Requiring Child Helmets

April 01, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

Vail Resorts may become the second ski company this year to make helmets mandatory for children attending ski school next season.

The company is especially concerned about out-of-town families who may not be aware that helmets are a rapidly growing safety trend, said Bill Jensen, chief officer of Vail Mountain.

Earlier this month, Aspen Skiing Co. announced that next season it would require all enrollees in ski schools younger than 12 to wear helmets. This season the resort is requiring children 6 and younger to wear helmets in ski school.
