    I like to keep the volume low and my concentration on the skiing so they only music that seems to work is music that I know really well. My brain fills in the details without really listening.

    Yes, situational awareness is so important. Maybe bone conduction headphones?

    Our helmets should overcome the fit issue, holding them in place.

    For this coming ski season this is the first dozen of 40 classic rock tracks on my main playlist out of 214 songs on my tiny Sandisk Sansa MP3 player. They are all on Youtube I crudely legally analog audio copied for personal only use via Audacity. And yeah since last couple years, I can even ski a long line of bumps while such is blasting, something that I could not do years ago as was distracting.

    Guns N' Roses\Knockin' On Heaven's Door
    AC DC\Shot Down In Flames
    The Rolling Stones\One Hit (To The Body)
    The Jimi Hendrix Experience\Hey Joe
    Ozzy Ozborne\Shot in the Dark
    Tom Petty\Runnin' Down A Dream
    AC DC\Guns For Hire
    The Rolling Stones\She's So Cold
    Aerosmith\Amazing
    Guns N' Roses\November Rain
    Aerosmith\Back in the Saddle
    Led Zeppelin\Your Time Is Gonna Come
