Smith Upstart Junior: My kid won't wear a snow helmet

When you send the most precious thing in your life out on the slopes, you want to make sure he or she is protected. One of the most difficult aspects of getting a child into any sport is making him or her realize the importance of protective gear. Kids think they're indestructible and see no reason to put on a hat, much less a helmet. The best way to get your kid to wear a ski helmet or snowboard helmet is to wear one yourself. And it doesn't hurt if your child has a great range of helmets to choose from. Smith has designed all of its youth ski helmets to be low-profile yet attractive, in a range of colors designed to appeal to even the pickiest little grom. Remember that ski helmets are not something a child should "grow into." Kids grow fast, so remember to check the helmet fit occasionally to make sure it still fits well. As with any helmet, be sure to inspect the interior and exterior for cracks or other damage after any serious impact.
