Yes to helmets!

The Association of ski resorts in Quebec and Owl’s Head recommend wearing a helmet as an additional security measure.

 

Learn about the benefits and limitations of different models and make sure that the chosen helmet is certified and carry an official seal.

 

The helmet does not mean that all risks are permitted, the most important thing to observe safety rules and adopt safe behaviors.
