"...announced that helmets will be mandatory this upcoming season for all children and youth in ski and snowboard programs, and for all students in terrain parks, regardless of their age.
The company is also recommending that all skiers and snowboarders at its resorts use ski helmets in the 2009-2010 season.
While helmet use will remain a voluntary choice for most guests at Intrawest resorts, school programs there previously allowed parents and guardians to opt out of having their children wear helmets.
This waiver will no longer exist."
Required for kids in learn to ski/snowboard programs and "students" in the terrain park. Seems pretty fair.
What parents would opt out of having their kids wear helmets?
