New Jersey Should Be Proud to Be First State To Require Ski Helmets for Minors

The Brain Injury Association of New Jersey applauds Gov. Christie and the State Legislature for creating a law that requires anyone younger than 18 years old to wear a properly fitted helmet while downhill skiing or snowboarding.

This law, which will be in effect for the 2011-2012 ski season, makes New Jersey the first state in the nation to require helmets for minors while skiing or snowboarding.


The Brain Injury Association of New Jersey would like to applaud all sponsors of this bill – Senators Anthony Bucco and Joseph Pennacchio plus Assemblymembers L. Grace Spencer, Anthony Bucco, Scott Rumana, Herb Conaway, Valerie Vainieri Huttle, Jack Conners, Nancy Munoz, Connie Wagner, Tom Giblin, Matthew Milam, and Mila Jasey. It is through their leadership that the lives of young skiers can be saved and brain injury may be prevented.
