I really do not get this debate and how staunchly the no helmet supporters defend the idea that helmets do not provide substantial protection in day to day skiing.
I am more worried about catching an edge on a wide open groomer and slamming my head on snow (not trees) or having a gate whap me in the noodle. (Saw a guy nearly get his ear ripped off last year on a gate. Bloody mess.) If he had a helmet, would have been an amusing story at the bar not a biohazard and trip to the e-room.
