California Chronicle

Today, the Assembly Judiciary Committee approved (7-2) legislation to safeguard children who enjoy California´s alpine sports: skiing and snowboarding.

SB 880, authored by Senator Leland Yee (D-San Francisco), would require all children under age 18 to wear helmets while skiing and snowboarding. The bill would also require resorts to post signs about the law on trail maps, websites, and other locations throughout the property.
