Children age 12 and under must wear a helmet while participating in a ski or snowboard school lesson. Rental helmets are available at our children's ski school locations for your convenience.
While helmets may reduce or mitigate the severity of some head injuries, their use does not guarantee safety and will not prevent certain injuries. The Resort reminds you that every winter sport participant shares responsibility for his or her safety and for that of others using the ski area facilities. Always show courtesy to others and be aware that there are elements of risk in skiing and snowboarding that common sense and personal awareness can help reduce. Know your ability level and stay within it. Become familiar with and observe “Your Responsibility Code” and share with other skiers the responsibility for a great skiing experience.
