Let’s face it—it’s smart to wear a ski helmet. Not only do ski helmets help prevent serious injuries, they can enhance your ski experience by keeping your head comfortable as well as keeping it in one piece! Just like ski boot sizing, the right ski helmet fit is essential. When shopping for a new ski helmet, check out a few different brands—models change from year to year, and you may find something new that suits you better.
Giro, Smith, and Salomon offer helmets to suit any price range. And some brands, including Giro, make ski helmets designed specifically for women (the Giro Women’s Prima Snowsports helmet).
Some other points to keep in mind to help you find the right helmet:
-Sizing. Use a tape measure and measure your head to the nearest centimeter to help you find the ski helmet that fits your head best.
-Special features. Many helmets have temperature features to help keep you comfortable. For example, the Giro Omen wireless audio model features an insulating seal and removable ear pads.
