Mandatory wearing of ski helmets

Without helmet? Never! Since 1 January 2022, skiers under the age of 18 years have to wear helmets when skiing, snowboarding and tobogganing in South Tyrol and throughout Italy. More and more adults are also opting for a ski helmet. 

And why not? A helmet looks stylish, protects you from the cold and – most importantly – prevents bad head injuries. The skiing areas in South Tyrol are among of the most popular in the Alps. The number of skiers and snowboarders is correspondingly large. Accidents can happen quickly.

Some skiers overestimate themselves and go much too fast. Others should take a skiing course before they hit the slopes. Still others confuse downhill skiing with the snow park. A ski helmet can save lives. Studies show that a helmet is effective in preventing serious head injuries.

When buying a ski helmet, be sure to try on the head protection first. The right size is crucial for safety – and of course it must also be properly buckled.

Mandatory wearing of helmets on South Tyrol's ski slopes

By law, all children and young people under the age of 18 must wear a helmet when skiing on South Tyrol's slopes. The ski helmets must be CE certified. At many ski schools and rentals, you can rent suitable protective helmets for a small price. Helmets are also compulsory for underage snowboarders, freestylers, telemarkers and tobogganers.
