Lol, some will say that's crazae, but doesn't mean it ain't true.
I have once or twice driven my noggen in the snow after totally messing up a backcountry kicker :P

The thread contributors can feel glad that they've convinced me to bring my helm for park use and they may also be sad because I'll never wear a helmet going down a fall line.
No offence like riding a motorcycle wearing a helmet is your prerogative man I'm sure your a great rider but when your riding steep terrain with deep snow, large drop and trees that are only spaced a few feet apart shit happens even to the best of us.
