Ski Resorts Celebrate National Safety Awareness Week While Keeping Patrons in the Dark About Safety Plans
Date:1/16/2009

ed for categorization.

The NSAA was quick to tout on its Web site recently that in the 2007/2008 ski season, the overall usage of helmets among skiers and snowboarders was up from 40 percent last season and 25 percent in 2002/2003. However, no states have any ski helmet usage laws and the NSAA does not advocate mandatory helmet usage or helmet rental availability for resort guests.

The resorts also do not regularly implement effective speed controls even though new equipment and snow grooming technologies enable patrons to speed down crowded slopes as fast as cars on the highways. While the California Department of Motor Vehicles requires drivers to pass tests to demonstrate their understanding of the consistent signage used on our nation's roads, signage on California ski slopes varies widely from resort to resort.

The California Ski and Snowboard Safety Organization (CSSSO) is a non-profit California corporation based in San Francisco. CSSSO promotes and supports safety improvements in California skiing, snowboarding and recreational snow sports and serves as an independent, factual public resource regarding the safety of California ski resorts.
