I started wearing a helmet while skiing

After much griping and resistance, I started wearing a helmet while skiing.  I ski instead of snowboard and got a fantastic deal on a Leedom helmet (like $50 instead of $120).  Due to a pretty advanced ventilation system, the Leedom kept my head pretty cool even in 35 degree weather and probably would have worked better if I had removed the earpads.

Lots of companies are introducing or have introduced earpads that are Bluetooth enabled or that have inputs for iPods or cellphones or both.  If you ski/snowboard, I’m sure you’ve ridden on a lift with some person that was either tuned out on their iPod or talking very loudly on their phone.  I must say that 2 of the things that I am not looking to do while skiing are listen to music or talk on my cell phone, but, hey, that’s just me.
