NO hockey helmets are much better. Ski helmets are not that good but do the job. Hockey helmet will protect you much more in short range falls and long range falls the any ski helmet.

Is it really necessary to wear a ski helmet?

In my opinion it is important to wear a ski helmet. It's not an opinion, its a fact. I know someone who was skiing and hit a tree really hard, mostly with her head. When she went to the doctor she brought her helmet with her. He said that it most definitely saved her life, why? It was one of the best helmets on the market and it was in three pieces. Also, recently where I ski, Big White, someone died because they hit a tree without a helmet. They usually wore a helmet but that day they forgot their helmet at their house in Kelowna, a 45 min. drive away, so he decided he would ski without. Also, about 10% of ski injuries are head injuries, about 90% of ski deaths are caused by head injuries and about 80% of those people weren't wearing helmets. That's reason enough for me to wear a helmet, it could very well save my life one day and that's important to me.
