why would any of you try to discourage a fellow boarder from protecting him self better from injury. I say if you want to wear a full face helmet, go for it.
More protection is always good if it gives you more confidence while on the slopes.
To save them the embarrassment of looking like a kook. Whether you want to wear a lot of protective gear or not is something for another discussion. But for fuck's sake don't wear a full face helmet.
