Colorado Ski Resorts Embrace New Helmet Policies

November 25, 2009

Colorado's ski industry is gearing up for the season and this year some of the biggest resorts are upping their efforts to promote the use of helmets. Vail Resorts is requiring all employees to wear helmets, and Intrawest, which operates Winter Park and Steamboat, is requiring helmet use by children in ski school. The increased focus follows the high profile death of actress Natasha Richardson at an Intrawest resort in Canada last year. Bente Birkeland reports from Denver.
