In 2018/9 the CISL will require all racers to wear helmets that meet the USSA and FIS helmet regulations. With this in mind, we wanted to alert everyone who may be purchasing a new helmet this season. If you have any questions, please refer to the link at the bottom of the League’s announcement.
From the CISL Website:
UPDATED – all racers will be required to wear helmets with full/hard ear covers. Racers who do not have a helmet that meets this criteria will not be allowed to race.
We are aware of the changes in helmet regulations that USSA has implemented. Currently our rules read as follows, “Helmets, designed and approved for ski racing, must be worn by all racers at all times while skiing in any and all CISL GS races. Helmets or approved slalom specific face protection MUST be worn in all SL races”.
Beginning with the 2017-2018 season the CISL will require all racers to wear helmets that meet the following criteria:

Thanks and looking forward to a great season,
