Default Vail Requires helmets for employees who ride/ski on duty.

Don't know how I feel about this one. I can sort of understand it for people who teach in ski school. Especially when kids are required to where a helmet. On the flip side, ski area employees are notoriously under paid. So now you have to buy a helmet when you are already living on Mac 'N Cheese and Ramen?

BROOMFIELD (AP) - Vail Resorts says its employees will be required to wear helmets while skiing or snowboarding on the job starting with the 2009-2010 season.
Vail also will require helmets for all children age 12 and under who take group lessons through its schools, and helmets will be part of the resort's children's rental packages unless parents or guardians sign a waiver.
