    Very sad. My nephew skis and does jumps and stuff and I know he is probably not always playing safe. I was young once and I know I did lots of dumb stuff and thats what scares me lol. You can’t live in a bubble. I don’t know if this mans death was a result of not wearing a helmet or not. The article does not say but please wear a helmet folks. You only have one life.
