and FIS helmet regulations. This is an important topic for all of us, so please read! Stricter
helmet standards have been put into place by FIS and USSA for GS, SG, and DH competitions - the new
helmet standards are required for all FIS competition and recommended for all competitors U14 and
up in USSA competitions this season. The new helmet standards will be REQUIRED next season for all
competitors U14 and older, including masters. The Far West Masters board is involved with ongoing
discussions with other masters divisions and USSA about the new regulations and the implementation
timing. but it is important for all of us to be aware of the stricter equipment rules pending for
next season and plan our equipment purchases accordingly.
