    Safety first

    When you’re bombing mountain slopes in the height of snowsports season, protecting your noggin should be pretty high on your list of priorities. Maybe the highest, actually. And luckily for you, we’ve got uber-protective helmets to keep you shredding safely all season long. Explore helmets from popular brands like Smith, K2 and Sweet Protection to get started.

    Keep your cranium covered

    A good hardshell helmet will keep your head from getting knocked around in the event of a nasty fall on the hill. Specifically, look for a MIPS helmet (that stands for Multi-directional Impact Protection System) to reduce rotational forces and absorb much of the impact in a crash scenario. Hopefully you never have to test it out for yourself, but if you do, your future self will have you to thank.

    Time for snow-capped adventures

    While we’re on the topic of snowsports safety, we’ve got a dedicated expert advice section on our site if you’re looking for things like an avalanche safety refresher (not a replacement for proper training, of course) or ski touring checklist. Otherwise, check out our skiing essentials and snowboarding gear to round out your cold-weather kit and you’re ready to hit the slopes. We’ll see you out there.
