Calif. Contemplates Requiring Skiers, Boarders To Wear Helmets

If some California lawmakers have their way, the decision to wear a helmet on the state’s ski slopes will no longer be a personal choice, the Associated Press reports. Two bills introduced by Democratic lawmakers from Northern California would require minors to wear a helmet while skiing or snowboarding. One of them also would extend to resort operations, requiring extensive injury reporting, sign posting and safety planning. If the bills pass and are signed into law, they would give California the nation’s most restrictive helmet laws for skiers and snowboarders and the most stringent requirements for ski resorts.
