Kirkwood encourages our guests to educate themselves on the benefits and limitations of winter sports helmets. Regardless of whether or not you choose to wear a helmet, every winter sport participant shares responsibility for his or her safety and for that of others using the ski area facilities.

Children's Ski School Helmet Policy

Kirkwood recommends the use of helmets for children 12 years and younger while participating in our children's ski school programs. Parents or guardians who decide their child (12 years and younger) will not wear a helmet while in a ski school program will be required to decline helmet use in writing on the ski school release agreement prior to their child's participation.
