NSAA Study finds increase in Helmet use

Next Up

The National Ski Areas Association found in their annual study that Ski and Snowboard helmet usage has doubled since the 2002-2003 season. Compiled with over 130,000 interviews, 57% of skiers and snowboarders are now wearing helmets. More and more people are obviously keeping their dome in check. Some fun stats, because you have to 'em:

87 percent of children 9 years old or younger wear ski/snowboard helmets;

75 percent of children between 10 and 14 wear ski/snowboard helmets; and

70 percent of adults over the age of 65 wear ski/snowboard helmets;

The NSAA's main goal is to put helmets on ALL kids under 14 years old by 2012, a noble goal. We wish them all the luck.
