With all the new advancements on concussions, wearing a helmet on the slopes is a no brainer. They’ve come a long way from the “speed racer” designs of past. They are light, warm and most importantly safe. They come in many designs and colours to appeal to anyone. Some argue that helmets aren’t cool; we would say they’re much cooler than brain injuries. Every year a person’s life is changed, or worse ended, by accidents on the hill. Most could be prevented by wearing a simple, properly fitted, sport appropriate, helmet. Some are lighter than hats, they are essentially windproof, which make them warmer than hats, and obviously they’re safer than hats. So why are you still only wearing a hat?
