National Ski Areas Association puts ‘Lids On Kids’

The National Ski Areas Association established Lids On Kids in August 2002 in an effort to encourage children to use helmets when skiing.

In the 2002-2003 skiing season, only 25 percent of American skiers wore helmets. In the National Ski Areas Association’s 2007-2008 Demographic Survey, they determined 43 percent of American skiers now wear helmets. That’s a 72 percent increase in just five years.

While Lids on Kids may not be single-handedly responsible for raising the amount of helmet-wearers on the slopes, they surely helped. With features such as safety articles for adults, games for kids and an FAQ section about safety, Lids On Kids is a resource for everything parents and children need to know about helmet use.
