I always roll with buds. Smaller the headphones the bigger the character.

what helmet do you wear? My Giro had skullcady replacement ear pads that i put in. Its so much better than ear buds. Most helmets these days have upgrade kits that you can purchase to put speakers in them.

I second that. I got a new helmet last year that had speakers in the ear pads. Now that I think about it I didn't even use them but they are there if I want to.....

last time i went to the snow, i used just normal hear phones, but they would fall out way too much, and then it would be hard to get em back in

Speaking as an experienced audiophile, Skullcandy headphones and buds sound like muffled farts through a tin can. Go with Klipsch S4s or I use Sennheiser 380 Sports for the waterproofing and they are more durable than most buds. If you want something that sounds good those are two of the best sounding buds I've heard for under $100. The Klipsch S4 actually sound better than most $300 earphones, but get some Sennheiser if you want more low end/bass. On Amazon Sennheiser 300s are like $20 or their waterproof version is about $60. They both come with ear pieces to fit in your canal and won't fall out. You can customize the rubber inserts for better sound and grip too.
