Las Vegas Ski & Snowboard Resort and Centennial Hills Hospital Medical Center present the 7th annual Lids on Kids program, a safety education campaign that provides free helmets to local youth.

The program kicks off at LVSSR on Saturday, Jan. 5, 2013 from 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. It continues at the same time every Saturday in January and Saturday, Feb. 2; the program coincides with National Ski Area Association Safety Week and Learn to Ski/Snowboard Month.

To date, LVSSR has provided more than 1,000 free helmets to local kids.  Trained Lids on Kids program volunteers will fit toddlers through pre-teens for a helmet. Children and their parents will participate in a short education program presented by members of National Ski Patrol to learn and understand the skier/snowboarder code of safety and responsibility. There's no charge for participating in the program and the helmets are the children's to keep.
