National Sporting Goods Association reports that Helmet use at US Ski Areas increased during the 2009-10 ski season.

Helmet Use at U.S. Ski Areas Shows Increase in 2009/10 Season according to the National Sporting Goods Association (NSGA) and the National Ski Area Association (NSAA). 

According to preliminary findings of the 2009/10 National Ski Areas Association (NSAA) National Demographic Study, 57% of skiers and snowboarders wear helmets on the slopes. Helmet usage among those interviewed nationwide increased 19% versus the 2008/09 season, when 48% of those interviewed were wearing helmets.

By comparison, just 25% of skiers and snowboarders wore helmets during the 2002/03 season. The annual Demographic study is compiled from more than 130,000 interviews of skiers and snowboarders nationwide.
The study also showed that: 87% of children 9 years old or younger wear ski/snowboard helmets; 75% of children between 10 and 14 wear ski/snowboard helmets; 43% of all 18-24-year olds interviewed wore helmets, representing a 139% increase in usage for this age group since the 2002/03 season, when just 18% wore helmets; and 70% of adults age 65 and older wear ski/snowboard helmets.
