Ok, I haven't skied with tunes on since being trapped in a tree well upside down and not being able to reach the volume control. It somehow got turned up full when I went in.

 

Was more worried about going deaf rather than suffocating. Of course, a few so called friends let me hang that way for a few minutes just so they could laugh a bit.

 

Tunes can be dangerous.

 

( Is that ok RS?)

I dislike being subjected to someone else's music while riding the lift, that is one thing helmets are good for, muffling earbuds!

Does Eric Foreman ski?

Weren't headphones banned at some ski areas back in the day? If I'm skiing by myself, I listen to music. Can't hear for shit anyway with this damn helmet on! Grrr! Being a follower of fashion isn't easy. If you think I don't yearn to be cruising on the old 207 slaloms, heels latched down, wearing a Moriarty hat, poles in one hand, cigarette in the other, you're wrong. But you have to keep up with the times, old man.

 

Never used Astraltunes, Walkman/Discman on the hill but iPod is so easy. You should get one. Get the old style Shuffle while they are still available. Refurb for $39. The new ones suck. Do it, you'll thank  me.

Ha!  Too funny =D

 

Ya know though, in most of the pics I found Professor Moriarty isn't wearing any head gear at all.  Coincidence?  You tell me.......

 

But this is my new image of 15.

Except, ya know, with 207s and an iPod.

I suppose you meant one more like this, eh?

Forget the Ipod.

 

I actually had to wait in a lift line with some fool wearing (and blaring) a soft shell version of this concept.

Rossi Smash could have his with a Rolls Royce Merlin instead.

I was gonna say Curtiss OX-4 but you use plastic skis, so you're not that retro.

Does it double as a jet pack? I can see the advertising banner now: "... forget waiting in lift line on those busy days, just strap this on and head right to the top 'o the mountain."

LOL-thanks. I had a crappy evening today

 

Note to self-don't watch Schindler's List for the first time when dealing with unhappy parents who email and facebook about how you've ruined their life. And this is a volunteer position!!!

 

And, if I listened to tunes while wearing my helmet, I'd probably be too distracted to remember to pull the chair lift bar down (after asking, of course, so as not to bonk people leaning backward, or was it sideways, in the head) Which, if they were wearing a helmet, too, wouldn't bother them anyway.

But that's just me....heaven forbid I try to save the rest of the world!
