      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Ski helmets

Recommended Posts

Please make sure you (adults) wear helmets. I didn't start wearing one until my kids' started skiing, but mine saved me on Monday. I still got a ride down from Timberline to the hospital with AMR RAT, but it could have been so much worse.

 

I don't even remember hitting my head, just that I thought I'd broken my thumb. But my son saw my head hit. I'm going to need surgery on my hand so doubt I'll get much climbing in the next few months, but that's nothing compared to what could have happened. So wear a helmet please!

Ick. Broken bones are a pain, but there are injuries that are much much worse.

 

Good to hear you've got a helmet. I skied for 40 years without one. Then I changed my mind about the consequences.
