I guess it depends on how your brain works. I spend the better part of my waking day with music playing in the background. In college and law school, I took tests while listening to headphones. For some reason, the music allows me to focus on whatever it is I need
to be doing, as opposed to all the other things that are going on around me.
From a covering-your @$$ standpoint, however, I again must caution against wearing "bud" or in-ear style headphones on the slopes. If you are involved in an accident and it becomes known that your hearing was seriously compromised, you're going to have a tough time proving it was the other guy's fault for cutting in front of you.
