I would hardly say learning is when you need it least. Catch an edge, go down on ice, head smashed like a melon... lol

Also why do you care about OSHA regs when you're snowboarding? Are you being paid to snowboard? I'd take a loose helmet with a beanie rather than no helmet any day.

I really don't care if people wear a helmet or not, but I have to question peoples motivation NOT to wear one.
