Staying Safe on The Slopes

Northern Michigan got plenty of snow this week, helping create some great conditions on the slopes.

Whether you are skiing, or snowboarding it is important to stay safe.

The National Skiers Association reports that a majority of people, 61% say they are adding a helmet to their list of gear.

That is up from 57% from the 2009-2010 survey.

Nearly 80% of children now wear helmets while on the hill.
