All skiers and snowboarders should wear ski helmets, the Canterbury Coroner says.
Regional coroner Richard McElrea made the comment at an inquest in Ashburton yesterday into the death of American student Rachel Swett, 21, on Mt Hutt last year.
''The fact is that had she been wearing a ski helmet properly, there would have been much greater chance of survival,'' he said.
