Vote for the Best Okemo Helmet Head!

It is the beginning of National Safety Awareness Week and Okemo is all about "Safety First." We had the folks from P.H.A.T. (Protect your Head at All Times) on hand today, promoting helmet safety. Karen Williams from P.H.A.T. worked with our SnowSports Shop in raffling off 6 helmets, which went to deserving skiers and riders. Besides promoting helmet usage the P.H.A.T. Table was the final destination for those who found Safety Helmets in our Safety Scavenger Hunt. Cardboard helmets with Skier Safety Codes on them were hidden along Green trails today. Hunters who found the helmets returned them to the P.H.A.T. table for a sweet prize bag!

Need a Helmet? Okemo’s Snowsports Shops have a large selection of helmets from vendors like Giro, Smith and Bern, plus a staff well trained to get you into the right one. If you purchase a helmet between Jan 16th-23rd you will be helping the Vermont Children’s Hospital. Starting Jan. 16 and running through National Safety Awareness Week, anyone who purchases a new ski or snowboard helmet at Okemo's Snowsports Shops will receive a coupon for 50 percent off a future full-day lift ticket, or 50 percent off a full-day equipment rental or high-performance demo, or 50 percent off a group lesson or adult clinic. New this year, $10 from every helmet purchase will benefit the Vermont Children’s Hospital P.H.A.T. program: $5 from Okemo and $5 from the helmet manufacturer.

So you are probably saying "Ok - let's get to the part about Voting for the Best Okemo Helmet Head!" The Events Team was out in the base areas looking for that perfectly messed up Helmet Hair. We found plenty of candidates, which means that helmet usage was abundant. In fact, over 260 helmets were rented resort-wide on Saturday, January 16th! This year the Okemo Marketing Department had a tough time narrowing down the field, so instead of the Top 10 we settled for the Top 11. Please take a second to Vote for your favorite "Helmet Head." Voting will end at midnight on Saturday the 23rd of February. The Head with the most votes will win 2 complimentary lift tickets!
