Helmet Use Is Up On Ski Slopes
A survey by the National Ski Areas Association says the use of helmets by skiers and snowboarders increased by 12 percent over the 2007-2008 skiing season. They consider that a big jump in use. Locally, The Crystal Mountain Ski Resort in Thompsonville says they are seeing numbers that reflect that trend. John McGowan and Photojournalist Stephanie Adkins met one snowboarder today who was converted to helmet use, the hard way.
