The Australian Ski Areas Association recommends the wearing of helmets for skiing and riding, and encouraged you to educate yourself on the benefits and limitations of helmet usage.

All guest participants in what is generally known as Kids and Children’s Snowsports School Programs be required to wear an accredited ski or snowboard helmet, and that there be no opt out facility or ability by a parent or guardian. 

All guest participants, of whatever age, in Snowsports School or other resort departments such as Resort Team or Winter Sports Clubs, which involve or include terrain parks, pipes, skier/boarder cross and/or race courses be required to wear an accredited ski or snowboard helmet.

Helmets are compulsory for all students in snowsports lessons. Hotham Sports will provide this as part of the rental package.
