Democratic lawmakers from Northern California have introduced two bills in the state regarding helmets and safety.  The first bill would require minors to wear a helmet while skiing or snowboarding, and the second would include the resort operations, as they would have to report extensive injuries, post signs, and undergo safety planning.  If both the bills do pass and are signed into law, then California would have the most restrictive helmet laws, as well as the most restrictive requirements for ski resorts.
