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!
Will my Subaru WRX take me up the mountain? For sure and well too. Is it as safe and quiet as an Audi S4? No way. You get what you pay for.
