Put lids on your kids. 

That's the message from the National Ski Areas Association (NSAA), which recently launched a new Web site to educate parents about how important it is for children to wear helmets when they're skiing.

'Wearing a helmet can help reduce the severity of a head injury under many circumstances,' says NSAA president Michael Berry. 'We recommend that parents, skiers and snowboarders educate themselves about the benefits and limitations of helmets and make an informed choice about whether to wear one or have their child wear one,' he says.

OMG! That's horrible. I've been skiing so many times and the worst I've had is a sprained ankle. I guess I don't really think about the dangers.

I haven't been skiing since 1996, when it happened. Too dangerous for me!

Obviously now I'd think more about it, but I can't imagine it being easy to ski with a huge helmet on...
