"Ski like a local…Wear a helmet. is the slogan for this year's effort by the Vermont Snow Sports Research Team to get every skier and snowboarder to wear a helmet while on the slopes. The Vermont Snow Sports Research Team is a partnership of Vermont Children's Hospital at Fletcher Allen Health Care and the University of Vermont College of Medicine.

The team is in the midst of a multi-year study, funded by the Vermont Department of Health and the Children's Miracle Network, which is examining trends in helmet use among skiers and snowboarders.
