Every year there is much talk about whether those heading off for their annual skiing holiday should wear a helmet for added protection. In some resorts it is compulsory for children to wear a helmet notably in Italy and Austria.

Other popular destinations have decided against mandatory ski helmet wearing but in most places they are available for hire.  Many travel insurers recommend that their policy holders wear ski helmets.  Travel insurance policy wording should of course be checked carefully to ensure the failure to wear a ski helmet does not void the policy in the event of injury.

More interesting perhaps is the slant taken by Physicians at the South Western Medical Center in America in this helpful article.   As well as checking your bindings and equipment, having the right supplies before heading off and building up your general fitness prior to departure, are a number of the helpful tips to be aware of the things that could go wrong while you are enjoying your ski trip.  Forewarned is forearmed.
