Do you wear a helmet?
OK so a bit of back round, I haven't rode for about 9 years. I rode hard for about 3 seasons in high school and then life got in the way. I am getting back into it with my wife who has never snowboarded and my 12 year old nephew who is also a beginner.
I told the youngster that he must wear a helmet on the hill because he is clumsy as hell just walking around, and is going to end up eating a lot of snow. I also suggested to my wife that she use one so she doesn't get injured, she doesn't think it will look cool. She made me agree to wear one to set a good example for the youngster.
I know in the park they require helmets all the time, but how many people wear them when they are free riding?
We will look like a pack of mushrooms riding down the hill, but thats better than picking up pieces of a skull i guess.
