HELMET RULES: Attention Parents of U14's and older ~ HELMET RULES go in effect THIS coming season! Make sure the helmet has the attached sticker! (one file is a pdf and one is a Jpeg) I posted this on our FB and Twitter accounts, but want to make sure everyone is informed!
a. HELMETS: All competitors and forerunners must wear a helmet for Giant Slalom, Super G, Downhill and Downhill Training and Alpine Combined that meets current equipment specifications. [606.4, 707, 807, 907, 1007, and additional USSA and FIS regulations.]
