    When they get old and my marriage is approaching the 20 year anniversary I'm sure my wife will see me without a helmet and be like "You do you! I support you!" and I'll think I've finally won.

    Then you probably wouldn't like an (uofficial) OV Team Tie Dye t shirt, but they wouldn't let you have one anyway.

    For those of us that have met and skied with Irul, there's nothing in that helmet worth protecting. It's more of a courtesy to the patroller who has to scrape his brains up from the slope. It should keep the mess mostly contained.
    Wait, how can we trust this guy^^^ He's clearly not DJSapp

    Fucking up your brain in a crash ain't worth saving some money. And judging by the craps on the helmet, it's been involved in a few crashes....

    "Schumacherís doctors say he would not have survived his fall had he not worn a helmet."

    Precisely. I've had two hits that probably could have killed me.

    Awesome thread drift.

    I just got a new helmet this year to replace my old, 10+ yo, helmet. It had been pretty packed out and loose. Replaced with same model, doesnít seem like anything has been updated other than itís MIPS now.

    Iíve definitely clocked myself good enough to be glad Iíve been wearing a helmet.

    Tram is on schedule to be running next season. Luckily they eliminated the station on the Buttress. My understanding is that you will be able to load/off load at the top of KT. Load/off load at Alpine will be near the current lodge.

    Can we rename the Tetons yet?

    And Mary’s nipple?

    And what about beaver creek?

    I’m aroused and offended at the same time.
