Note, I am not suggesting that you are a helmet evangelical in any way; I know you much better than that.
Thanks...For a moment I thought.
Last weekend, poaching for stashes of pow with my son, cruising trough woods at low speed, I dodge a branch, just to get the next broken pointy stump right on my forehead. almost knocked me off the board. It was pointing at me and was a pretty sharp one too. without helmet I would have needed stitches for sure. But then I use protective gloves and padded shorts too..
