Best possible head protection

So I'm a new snowboarder (2011 season was my first) and I was wondering if anyone had ideas on helmets that could protect the front of my face more (nose specifically.) I was in a severe closed head injury as a child so I have to be safe as possible! Thanks.

Check the Ruroc helmets and Sweet helmets. Both have full face options. I think the Ruroc would be the better option personally though.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

The ruroc looks like a great option, super low profile.

And those Roroc helmets are kinda creepy with those masks, but that definitely looks like it might work... Thanks!

Definitely agree here. And you look like a Stormtrooper with the Ruroc on!

I've seen kids with motocross helmets on the hill.

And I would probably buy a Ruroc if I could just get a chance to see one "in person" first. Unfortunately they seem to be mail-order only, at least around here.

Having seen Slyder's experience with the corrugated pipe, I kind of like the idea of face protection when trying something new.

Yeah I guess that is my issue too. Like that other guy said, they do make the people wearing them look like storm troopers, and I don't want to bring more attention to myself. (Already do that with the falling I do!)
My boyfriend told me about the motorcross helmets, but I heard they make you kinda top heavy and make your balance different. (Also do not need help with that.)

I just need face protection permanently, I guess. (Doctors told me I cannot afford another head accident like I had.)

At least you don't plan on skiing. Right there you are protecting your noggin more than any helmet ever will
