Amelia Waters reports for Fox23 television that Windham Mountain ski resort has added helmets in their rental packages this year. Helmet usage is not mandatory in New York State. But last winter, in separate instances, two women not wearing helmets ran into trees on Windham Mountain and died. The last ski-related fatality at Windham Mountain occurred more than 15 years ago. According to the National Ski Areas Association, an average of 40.6 people have died skiing/snowboarding per year in the U.S. in the past decade. Read the entire story on the Fox23 website.
