Letter: Where are the helmets?
Both Vail Resorts and Vail Health have encouraged people to protect their valuable brains by wearing helmets while skiing and snowboarding. I find the photo on the front page of the Vail Daily on Thursday, April 4, very disconcerting. The EpicMix photographer is taking a picture of three skiers, one wearing a helmet which is not fastened, and two wearing ski hats instead of helmets. Surely a photo showing skiers protecting their heads with helmets, buckled, would be more appropriate.
The graduates of Vail Mountain School’s class of 2019 will be off to far-flung destinations next fall, set to enter college in one of 16 different states or explore the world on a gap year. One grad is even attending college in Canada.
