Helmets are strongly recommended as they may make a difference in reducing or preventing some types of head injuries. Steamboat requires all on-mountain staff to wear helmets while working, and all students age 17 and under participating in lessons, KVC, group or private, must wear a helmet. Additionally, students of any age (group or private) using a terrain park that is fenced and designated by the orange Terrain Park oval must wear a helmet..

If you wear a helmet, make sure it fits properly and that it has not been damaged. Bear in mind that a helmet will not prevent all head injuries and you must at all times ski/ride in control. Skiers and snowboarders are encouraged to educate themselves on the benefits and limitations of helmet usage. Rental helmets are available at our Ski & Sport locations.

Lids on Kids

In addition to our Steamboat Ski & Sport locations, kids can also find helmets at the Kids' Vacation Center. Steamboat supports the National Ski Areas Association's Lids on Kids initiative: www.lidsonkids.org
