SCOTT Couloir Mountain Helmet
The dual-certified Couloir Mountain Helmet by SCOTT is a lightweight and low-profile helmet that is great for both winter and spring conditions. Its dual-padding configuration is ideal for either skiing or mountaineering. Because climbing is hard and sweat-producing they have equipped this dome-protector with a Coolmax moisture management system along with a passive venting system to ensure no overheating in warmer conditions while still providing the appropriate warmth and insulation needed for colder conditions. SCOTT's Casidion Technology has allowed them to create a lightweight shell design that when combined with their Halo Fit System will have you feeling like an angelic cherub of the backcountry. Because it is always darkest before the dawn patrol, this helmet also comes with a headlamp attachment system that will keep your torch pointed in the right direction during those early morning starts. As a piece of safety equipment that is the best of two worlds, the SCOTT Couloir Mountain helmet can be there for a lift ride, or for a jaunt up a skin track. If you want to ski everything you can all winter long, get a helmet that wants the same thing!

Questions & Reviews
I am looking for the lightest helmet possible for a 50 pound child who needs an adult large (dwarfism, but can ski fast).
These weights don't include the winter padding. The padding adds about 45-50 grams.
Yes, the winter liner is removable!
All three of the helmets on your radar check the box of dual certification (CE 1077, EN 12492). Also, all three have a headlamp clip, and winter liner option. However, they each have a unique feature set to consider.
I will start with the Scott Couloir. The most affordable of your lineup, this helmet has a pretty similar weight to the Movement 3Tech Alpi, and comes in lighter than the Salomon MTN Lab Helmet. I find the ventilation on this helmet is quite good, the adjustment system is low on hotspots, and the larger sizes can fit a large head.
The Movement 3Tech Alpi also has superb ventilation, and has all the features you would expect from a helmet. One thing to mention, this helmet is triple certified, so you can sell off your other lids for a quiver of one that even covers mountain bike season.
The The Salomon MTN Lab is a comfy helmet that works with a range of head shapes and sizes. I would say this helmet possesses the best liner of the bunch, and is super versatile!
Additionally, it fits well with the Julbo Aerospace goggles (the ones where the lenses pop out) without making me look like a gaper. I'm able to use this duo for uphill touring without removing my helmet and goggles if the temps are right (below freezing ish).
