Helmets are provided free of charge. Helmets are recommended, but students are not required to wear a helmet. Regardless of your ability - whether you'll be performing freestyle tricks or not, a low speed back slip on the back of your head can cause serious head injury. Although there's little doubt about the importance of wearing a Helmet, keep in mind that wearing a Helmet while Snowboarding/Skiing does not make you invincible. Helmets are certainly expected to be of benefit in more minor impacts, glancing blows and other similar mishaps.
