Nick. Fantastic video. Glad you are ok
Welcome to the Barkeater's club.
I can't believe people still ski without a helmet.
I'd never ski without a helmet but keep in mind it won't protect you from chest trauma.
Good stuff Nick......what is the line....Every man dies, but not every man really lives
...or somethin' like that..
BTW, have you found a lense that works well with snowstorm, low-light...?(I'm NOT being facicious(sp?)....gonna try to pick up that Smith I/O[X?] within a week(HA, a little late...again)
I wear a Smith I/O and they worked great that day

I have seen three very gruesome, bloodied, wrapped around tree accidents. In one case last year, it took several patrol to evacuate the dude from deep, off piste snow (he was on-trail, at very high speed). I watched the whole thing from the lift. From the lift, I had to shouted to skiers, who didn't even know he was down there to get patrol, one to get down to him. I got to patrol first. They blasted down with a litter. He was motionless for the next half-hour. I saw, that even with the helmet on, his face was carnage. I can't describe how bad it was.
I have also taken a couple falls on boilerplate myself, where I was glad to have it.
There is no looking back for this dude.
