A. It is not mandatory to wear a helmet on the slopes but is advisable especially if you will be skiing off-piste. Although the risk of sustaining a head injury is small there is still a risk and a ski helmet will protect your head from injury should you fall. Many resorts now enforce the wearing of helmets so before you go check if you will be required to wear one and if you will need to bring your own.
