Check Your Helmets

The use of a helmet is mandatory for all events. Helmets used in USASA Snowboard/Ski events shall be specifically designed and manufactured for use in snow sports and shall bear a CE mark and conform to recognized and appropriate standards such as CE 1077 or US 2040, ASTM 2040.

You will be required to have a Ceritified for Snowsports use helmet on your head before participaing in any USASA Rocky Mountain Series event.

Please review section 151.02 "Saftety Equipment" of the 2012/13 Rule Book available at www.usasa.org/rulebook  So please, no "dude whats up with that"...........its your responsibility to get the right lid on your head.

Shown below are a few of the companies that make approved helmets.  They'll have a sticker inside stating "APPROVED FOR SNOWSPORTS USE & the CE 1077 or US 2040, ASTM 2040 tags.  Some manufacturers make both types, Bern for example makes the BAKER Hard Hat which is NOT APPROVED and also a Baker EPS Foam Model that Seth Wescott wears which is APPROVED.  Talk to the guy or gal in the shop, be sure they show you the sticker that says its approved before you lay down your cash,  cause if you show up wearing a helmet thats not approved, you're gonna be a DNS!

If you've got any questions, please write me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. but this is a pretty simple requirement, for your own protection, its not an option and we're done discussing this!
