Trees, rocks, lift towers, hard snow, ice, other skiers -- these are the reasons to wear a helmet. No matter where you ski, no matter your ability, helmets are always recommended. Protec helmets are a great brand with a slick style that won't get in your way.
The pros of Protec include a decent price point, multiple impact protection and a simple look that won't embarass your teenager and, in basic black, won't clash with your favorite ski outfit.
The Protec doesn't have great heat and air venting, so you may overheat with this helmet. Also, because of the multiple impact protection of the helmet, it is a bit heavier than some other options.
