More and more people are wearing helmets when they head out on the ski slopes, according to the Swiss government’s accident prevention bureau. Over the last 7 years, the proportion has risen from 16 percent to 82 percent.


The government says awareness campaigns have worked but there’s still a considerable difference between German-speaking and French-speaking parts of the country. Interestingly, just under two thirds of skiers in French-speaking Switzerland wear a helmet; in German-speaking regions, the number is 86 percent.
