Because wearing a ski helmet is going to give you a sore neck and back in any riding position other than that of a beach cruiser/priest bike.
Even skate helmets are a pain to wear in a stretched-out road bike position, for anything more than ~10 miles or so.
Don't get me wrong, bike helmet users need more protection than is provided by the current crop of helmets. But IMO ski helmets have nothing, zero, zip, nada to offer in that regard. The complete destruction of a MIPS bike helmet I posted about last year without that system even activating is just one example. If anything, better bike helmets will give us better ski helmets, not the other way 'round.
