Copyright American Academy of Pediatrics, 01/2013
Snow Skiing and Snowboarding Children should be taught to ski or snowboard by a qualified instructor in a program designed for children. Never ski or snowboard alone. Young children should always be supervised by an adult. Older children’s need for adult supervision depends on their maturity and skill. If older children are not with an adult, they should always at least be accompanied by a friend All skiers and snowboarders should wear helmets. Ski facilities should require helmet use, but if they do not, parents should enforce the requirement for their children. Equipment should fit the child. Skiers should wear safety bindings that are adjusted at least every year. Snow boarders should wear gloves with built-in wrist guards. Eye protection or goggles should also be used Slopes should fit the ability and experience of the skier or snowboarder. Avoid crowded slopes. Avoid skiing in areas with trees and other obstacles.
