AFAIK there is not a single snow helmet on the market which is rated for multiple impacts. Just because you cannot see the damage does not mean that the helmet's integrity hasn't been compromised. Rule of thumb is to replace the helmet after any significant impact.

Although there's no standard for what constitutes "significant", I'd say that any time you knock yourself out, any time you get a concussion, see stars, etc., certainly qualifies as significant.
