The Australian Ski Areas Association recommends the wearing of helmets for skiing and riding, and encourages you to educate yourself on the benefits and limitations of helmet usage.
All guest participants in what is generally known as Kids and Children’s Snowsports School Programs are required to wear an accredited ski or snowboard helmet, and there is no opt out facility or ability by a parent or guardian.
Hotham Sports will provide helmets to all children participating in a snowsports lesson FREE as part of the rental package.
Helmets are not compulsory if you're not in a lesson, however we strongly encourage all of our guests - adults and children to wear a helmet when out on the slopes.
You can rent Red and Head Helmet brands from Hotham Sports.

Helmet selection and fitting is available on arrival at any of our equipment rental outlets.
