Helmets are a Good Idea
I broke down and bought Jeremy a helmet yesterday at Sport's Chalet in North Phoenix. They are having a crazy sale and I figured that for a whoppin' $40, I could save caring for a vegetable for the rest of his life. Not a lot to damage in there anyway, but I try to set a good example for Jake and Jackson and wear mine. Now Jeremy can be an uncle and brother that the kids look up to because he is safe and responsible... hahahaha... He is probably going to read this and smack me now.
I went night skiing in 2003-04 and fell hard when I caught an edge. I was dizzy the entire drive home and had headaches for a week. It was bad enough that I completely destroyed my goggles and was literally seeing stars (but it was night skiing afterall). I wear mine almost all the time and for kids, especially when you are anywhere near the terrain park or newbie skiers or boarders, they are a good idea. You can be the best skier on the mountain, but a helmet protects you from the other idiot that runs into you.
That was my helmet safety course. =)
