Safety on the Slopes
The old saying “Safety First” is especially important when it comes to snowsports. The National Ski Patrol, in keeping with its federal charter, advocates safe practices on the slopes and recommends wearing a helmet while skiing and snowboarding. At the same time, we all must realize that helmets have their limitations and are not the end all for safety. In addition to the proper use of helmets, the National Ski Areas Association (NSAA) has developed Your Responsibility Code to help snowsports enthusiasts avoid injury and make their experience as safe and enjoyable as possible. NSAA has also prepared a helmet safety fact sheet for your convenience, and compiled additional ski and snowboard safety statistics available in the pressroom at NSAA.
