2022-10-05T19:32:28.611Z

Skiing, yes, but not in just any conditions. For optimal safety, consider adding a ski helmet to your outfit.



Start preparing for your mountain vacation by thinking about the equipment you need.

In addition to the outfit, the skis, but also the poles, you have to think about the ski helmet.

This equipment is absolutely essential to protect you if you ever fall or collide with someone.

If it is possible to rent a ski helmet in the resort, you can also buy one.

This option has several advantages.

The helmet you wear will fit perfectly, unlike rental ones.

In addition, you will be the only one to have worn it, which is rather pleasant insofar as one can sweat a lot while skiing.

    Is the helmet compulsory for skiing?

    That's it, you're starting to think about the upcoming winter sports holidays and you're asking yourself lots of questions about the equipment to provide?

    We shed some light on the question of the ski helmet.

    In France, it is not mandatory on the slopes.

    However, it is highly recommended.

    Why ?

    Because it offers very good protection for your head.

    Indeed, falls while skiing can be quite violent.

    You can hit snow which is sometimes very hard, but also obstacles like a tree or rock.

    A ski helmet will then save you the day and prevent you from getting serious injuries.

    It is also useful in the event of a collision with another skier or a snowboarder.

    As you will have understood, to enjoy your sessions on the slopes in complete safety, bet on a ski helmet.

    Besides,

    If the ski helmet is not mandatory in France, note that some ski schools require it for people wishing to take lessons, especially children.

    So you can let them go on the slopes with peace of mind and knowing that they are well protected.

    Another advantage of the ski helmet is that it insulates you from the cold.

    Certainly, the cap can perform the same function, but it holds less well on the head.

    Since the ski helmet is attached, it is not likely to fly off and protects the ears well from the cold.

    How to choose the right helmet size?

    For your ski helmet to be really effective and protect you optimally, it must fit your size.

    To know yours, it's very simple, just measure your head circumference.

    To do this, take a flexible tape measure, then wrap it around your skull, above your eyebrows, you will have the diameter of your head.

    If you don't have a tape measure, don't panic, you can take some string and then measure it on a ruler or a rigid tape measure.

    Ski helmet sizes are usually expressed in centimeters, so you will easily know which size to choose.

    If it is indicated in letters: S, M or L, see if the dimensions are indicated somewhere, or if equivalences are mentioned.

    Importantly, your ski helmet must fit snugly on your head,

    there must be no play as this could aggravate injuries in the event of impact.

    Ditto, the helmet must not be too tight, at the risk of being uncomfortable.
