Diary of a Ski Patrolman: Week 12
You might never need it, but you’ll still look like a modern day armored knight, with a few less spikes and more comfortable padding. And who doesn’t want that? But the day you do need it, the day that your amazing skiing ability fails you just for a moment, you’ll have a helmet, and it will make all the difference between a potentially serious injury or just a bit of rest. I recommend taking the shorter recovery, and the warmer route of a helmet. And if you have a helmet and ask me a terribly silly question on the slopes, I won’t ask you to remove it…I’ll just nod and wave, and be glad for one thing, at least.
