In some low light Sunday, I misjudged the pop of a jump on the side of a trail, had my speed amplifier set to 11 as I hit it, and hit it way too hard, and paid the price with a nasty shot to the back of my head when I didn't land it. I wear a Smith Vantage helmet. Miraculously (or kudos to Smith Vantage helmets) I don't seem to be showing any symptoms of concussion. But, man, that was a hit.
I know with motocross helmets (polycarbonate shell or whatever), the rule is to replace a helmet that takes a big hit. But with ski helmets, with what seems like dense foam, I'm not sure if the same rule applies? There's nothing about it on the Smith website.
