I agree completely. A lot people say they do not wear a helmet because they do not crash a lot but I'm sure most are aware that many injuries on the mountain result from collisions and everyone is subject to being hit by another skier or boarder. I don't crash my car a lot, but I still wear a seat belt. Same principle.

I ski better and more confidently with a helmet on - it allows you to ski outside your comfort zone. Never mind the fact that it's warmer than any tuque can be. Need to teach a good example to my 8 year old daredevil son too!

i hate helmets, they all look really ****ing dorky and stupid, they're uncomfortable, and they overall suck balls

that being said, i wear a helmet and i hate it

i wear helmets biking, too, and last summer i happened to slam my head on a rock, cracking the helmet, barely felt a thing. good thing i was wearing a helmet or i'd probably be a retarded motionless vegetable leaking drool down my face & having someone else wipe my ass

i think i'd rather risk looking like a dork with a helmet than the above for a lifetime

I agree 100% there are no excuses now not to wear one...
For any anti-helmet-wearers amongst you, would you wear one with a Fosi attached (see Fosi Originals website)?
More of a girl thing I know!
Would appreciate your feedback-

You bet I wear a helmet! Grew up skiing without one, but started using one last year. Nice and warm.

helmet is a must. i'm confident in my own skiing abilities but not the other people on the mountain. one of my ski buddies got their arm broken by a guy that had never been on skis before and lost control.

I may come in from the rain, this year, a good mate has said I should start wearing one & since he is a better skier than me, I guess he has the "cuedos" to say it!

I never wore a helmet before the day I misread the snow, hit a big jump and landed on my head... that was my last time skiing without a helmet. It is wonderful, keeps my head and ears warm, even in heavy winds, and I feel safe.

i won't wear it when it's short distance, but for long, of course, i should take it to protect me.
