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 they are required in kids ski/ride school.

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
