Free helmet offer for skiers and snowboarders

Tour operators Ski Dream and Made to Measure are offering free helmets as an incentive to early bookers for next winter.

The helmets, which would usually retail for around £50 are available to customers booking by June 10. They will be provided for each member of a group booking, including adults and children.

Meanwhile, as a further riposte to those who question the efficacy of helmets, I am in full agreement with my ski writing colleague Peter Hardy when he notes: "It amazes me that the once-a-year skier who wouldn't contemplate sitting on a horse or riding a bike down a country lane without wearing a helmet, is prepared to whizz around crowded runs in Méribel or St Anton with just a headband, hat or beanie for brain protection."
