Any protection is better than none, but is spending $130 really worth it? I would imagine any helmet would work - obviously not as well as a "snowboard" deemed helmet with specific advantages (re; speakers, insulation, etc.) - to at least do the basic protecting that a helmet is good for. So, as long as it is not a huge deal, would wearing a simple skateboard helmet give you the same level of protection on the snow as it would against concrete?

I got a good chuckle when I saw a snowboarder a few weeks ago with a dirtbike/motocross helmet. More dangerous than beneficial with the limited peripherals but it does add to my original question: can any helmet work as a snowboard helmet?

Goddamn I am a stingy mofo!
