While i agree with this kind of Sentiment overall(keep the f'ing govmnt out of my way) let me play devils advocate for a minute.

It's a well know fact that drivers who don't wear seatbelts and motorcyclers who don't wear helmets drive up overall insurance rates for is that fair?

Also I'd imagine that if a resort has a helmet policy it would decrease their liability insurance rates and has a real impact food\drink\ticket prices.

As with most things in life there's allot of in and outs as the dude would say, do I give a fuck if anyone wears a helmet or I could give a shit less.

I don't think most people without insurance don't have 30K sitting around for knee surgery
