New safety rules are about to go in effect following actress Natasha Richardson's skiing death. The company that owns the ski resort where Richardson died in Quebec six months ago has announced helmet requirements at its North American resorts. The 45-year-old actress died after falling during a skiing lesson and injuring her head at Mount Tremblant. In California, Vail Resorts which runs Heavenly, will require all its employees to wear helmets while on the slopes.
