You should go pick up a bern hard hat. I had quite a few falls this season trying new tricks in crapy conditions (super icey). And so far I haven't had a concussion this season (been out 25 times this season).

Personally I like the hard hat because even when you catch a edge (for a stupid reason, like being lazy with your turns), a small crash won't requrie you to buy a new helmet.

Ive had a about three hard impacts this season, in which the back of my helmet hit pretty hard snow, and my hard hat is still good.

David,

According to my friends that were with me, the medical staff at the hill checked the helmet and said that it was still good. Do you still recommend going out and getting a new helmet?

Nevermind, I am going to take everyones opinion and just buy a new helmet.

I do have an additional question. When I got home on Monday, I went to my doctor as recommended and they sent me for a CT scan. They couldn't believe that the medical staff at the hill didn't send me for one. After you get a concussion, is the medical staff supposed to recommend you go to the hospital for scan right away?

Yeah, it sucks. I have all new equipment as well.
