I've been snowboarding for 15 years and I never had a helmet. Snowboard equipment is not cheap and if you can afford it go for it but I don't think you shoud wait to have one to hit the slopes.
$50 for a helmet. Not sure what a replacement head costs but it has to be at least a couple of hundred!?

They are worth every penny. You just never know what might happen.

So many runs so little time.
