Helmet? Do you wear one when skiing?

Well I just wanted to see what kind of results this poll gave, do you wear a helmet when skiing? I was considering buying one as i don't wear one at the moment.

Thoughts please ..

I always wear my helmet when I teach. When I ski with friends or other instructors I tend to like to go with a toque. If it is snowing like crazy though I wear the helmet to keep my head dry.

I probably should seeing as Iceface aka Whiteface is where I ski, and I do tend to wipe out quite a bit since I have yet to allow my brain control over my balls.

I never had one for years and then bought one after a couple of snowboarding falls.

Its warm, lightweight, comfortable and the sensible thing to do, so wear it all of the time now.

there is no reason NOT to wear a helmet nowadays. they are so light you don't know you are wearing one. they keep you nice and warm with a degree of protection.
most people not wearing them are just too stubborn to know whats good for them.

i always wear one, after a concussion from a nasty crash a kid the parents made it mandatory when i was young, now i just dont see why you wouldnt, they keep your head warm, and still in one piece if/when you blow up, they're light and comfortable... its just smart
