dyyylanOnly 18% of votes have had no concussions, that's a lot lower than I expected.
What I'm interested in is: of that 82% with concussions, what percentage of those were while wearing a helmet?
I'm not trying to rehash the helmet debate, but I think its understood that if you're skiing at a high level (fast speeds/big hucks) that a helmet doesn't offer much protection. I'm pretty sure there was a study that came out in the last few years that said something to the effect that concussions in skiing have gone up despite more widespread use of helmets, which you can attribute to kids going bigger or better understanding of concussions. That being said, I have a very good friend who was in a crash and had a tbi, even though the helmet split it probably saved his life.
Anyway, excellent thread, just like good decisions in avi terrain lead to skiing another day, sometimes that huck to flat ice isn't worth it no matter how many people are looking.
