Feel free to open the throttle a little further with the Salomon Mountain (MTN) Lab helmet. The ‘Lab is certified to both alpine skiing and mountaineering standards, so you are better protected if you sketch out. Plus, Salomon was listening to its backcountry team when they explained no one will wear it if it’s heavy, cumbersome, or hot. They innovated with a new 4D EPS construction that offers alpine-like protection at a fraction of the weight. A silky Activedry Merino wool liner keeps sweat at bay and is comfortable enough to wear on the up (saving valuable pack space). The Salomon MTN Lab is the new lightweight, dual-certified, star kid on the block.

Questions & Reviews
I alternate between this helmet and a black diamond vector helmet for all of my skiing needs. For most winter days, I reach for this helmet because it has better coverage and fits better with most ski goggles. The weight penalty is small, but note that it takes up a bit more pack space. For spring skiing and skimo racing, I will still reach for a climbing style helmet for better ventilation and lighter weight, but if I had to take this along I still wouldn't mind as the ear covers can be removed.
Overall: great fit, great coverage, light weight, and versatile.

Comfortable with two liners (one with earmuffs, and a thinner liner without for warm days). Works perfectly with goggles and headlamps. Has excellent ski goggle/forehead ventilation for keeping your view fog-free on long descents or when crossing stormy ridge lines. Larger and heavier than a climbing helmet but offers superior impact protection from a crash; and better overall coverage of your temples and rear head. It has also proved durable over a long season.
I don't really notice the weight when compared to carrying my BD Vapor helmet, but when wearing goggles to ski fast I am much more comfortable in the MTN Lab helmet. Furthermore, it's great peace of mind to know I have excellent impact protection. I even wear it for resort laps on warm spring days.
