Default Re: To wear or not to wear a Helm?

In Norway we are pretty good at wearing helmets, old and young, experienced and novice, one plank or two, from the park kid landing 25'ers with ease to the dad on the bunny hill putting his 4yr old on a pair of skis or snowboard for the first time.

we get a few die hards, 60yr old on their telemarks with pilot sun glasses and Norwegian wool knit sweater on to the once almost pro mother of three bombing the mountain on her slaloms as many times as she can before her Easter holiday is over.

Point is helmets are cool, and if your not wearing one then you either know your craft very well and are taking a calculated risk or think your better then you actually are and are horrible at counting the odds that are stacked against you...
