Default Cracked Helmet

Went to Windham yesterday. Had a great time despite the mtn being pretty small. Snow softened up a bit from this stupid heat wave, so all things considered good conditions. I found a nice trail that passed Wraparound park so I decided to hit some jumps (I am a beginner, but I've been advancing pretty quickly and I'm really excited to hit more parks). Got decent air on several tries and fairly clean landings.

Anyway..of course on the last run of a great day on the 2nd jump I go too fast and I guess? panic in mid-air? (or I'm just bad at it) so I bail backwards. I owe it to inexperience hitting jumps and not being completely sure what to do with my body.

Thank god I had the helmet on. Take a look. Gonna be looking for a new helmet, perhaps without the button to secure goggles because I'm thinking now that might affect the structural integrity of the helmet.

Thoughts? Suggestions? Appreciated!
