Woah! ..whilst I applaud the concern for safety, let us just remember these are not mandatory! (freechoice still exists in th main)

"suggested" safety measures ..don't dictate, many folk will not ever need one that merely puts a different spin on snow sports with regards to safety / recklessness.

The other aspect to consider is that these don't make you safer if you are stupid or plain lazy in the first instance.
For instance, I see many folk follow like sheep, without throwing a proper head movement beyond the limited viewing angle of their goggles, beyond the extended curve of the headshell they are wearing, in other words in a moving sport where joining a run, crossing a track etc can result in an at speed pile up , simply LOOKING would have solved their problems.

If you go down the helmet route ensure you buy (if not kitted out already) helmet compatible goggles / or an accessory which helps proper fit for a helmet & won't add undue pressure to your face / bridge of your nose.

Use common sense, & learn slope etiquette, as it is where many accidents happen.

I have a helmet however I try not to use it unless in really sketchy conditions on a "poopworthy" sketchy avalanche prone, probes, tranceivers & buddy system is required. (or learning a new drop in spot along the same lines till i'm as positive as can be that the area is safe day to day.

Well this goes without saying really. Helmets don't magically stop people from being stupid. But at the same time an accident is not always the individuals fault. I've lost count of the times a skier/snowboarder has come flying out of nowhere straight into me or or tries to get through small gaps in big groups of people on narrow runs. At the end of the day you're better off with a helmet than without one so long as you don't give up your senses for some extra head protection.

However, people really DO think themselves bionically armoured with this schmutter on, not understanding injuries are just as likely to arise from not warming up & stretching (properly) nor putting in the effort in a fitness push in the months prior to a snow sport holiday.

Take a cluster of "skittles" who don't read the slope, or the tightpacked spot nor how to navigate it when busy (dusk approaching) clogs the track, doesn't move to the side, then you've got 30 idiots to weave through / round who get furious that you rode within inches of little johnny when they were breaking all protocols on a working run.

Please
Read the fall line folks! (that also includes the little incline the majority have floundered on) as they breeze down the run not really focussed & "working the slope"
& familiarise yourselves with the famous "run outs" earlier in the day(s) ..& wax regularly ..that sort of knowledge will help keep you not throwing your weight (& body form / balance) around in a desperate flail to keep / get moving (& the subsequent falls encountered).

If you are planning a park jam, then consider back, butt & head protection, ..do it early in the week when time is not yet your constraint to putting in the effort in a controlled manner.

Ultimately, throw a proper look (not a glance) at every opportunity of any run / descent to scope safety, the old " didn't see him" / it simply doesn't wash.

As well as that, check your bindings screws & bolts for tightness, at lunch & after the last run (whilst shops are still open) failing gear is another heavy hitter for tumbles mid run when something has come adrift. ..(pizza boxes don't make good compression washers long term).

Applying this in a dedicated manner will up the ante on your slope safety & that of others rather than depending upon something like a helmet to keep you safe when something completely preventable brings trouble to you.

Love

..cheaper than a resort doctors visit!

Still amazes me who because it sounds like a board is close to them will panic & blame someone else for their loss of concentration, as well as those who glist past in close proximity on a tight run without so much as a french & english "on your left, coming by" ..courtesy yell to those they approach & intend to pass within a few inches of when push comes to shove :( ..allowing the person in front to correct their lazy falling leaf & straightline to facilitate safe passing.
