I'm getting ready to head out for another day on the slopes. I'm old enough to remember the days when no one bothered with helmets while skiing or snowboarding, but now there's no way I'd be without one. This year I finally traded up helmets. Though no signs of wear and tear are evident it's nearly 10 years old, so time for a new one.
When you're shopping for a helmet, make sure it's a good fit with whatever you usually wear. I never wear a toque and for really cold days I'll don a skull cap (thin swim cap looking thing) so my needs are different than someone who likes to wear a toque. I usually advise to buy a slightly bigger helmet, because you can always add padding to make it smaller.
