Ski and snowboard helmets (snow helmet) have now been mandatory in some resorts for a while; and it is easy to understand why when your flying down a mountain skiing or snowboarding with no more than a bobble hat on. For the protection that they offer it really is a small sum to pay, no longer the bulky and old fashionable bits of kit that they once were, these helmets are stylish and protective. With plenty of features to make sure you get a good comfortable fit, you'll wonder why you haven't skied or snowboarded wearing one before. A few to look out for would be the Atomic Nomad, with its 'Live Fit', providing you with a comfortable and secure fit. POC are synonymous with head protection; as are Salomon.
