Snow-loving April Fools retrospective

I thought these were all pretty good:

"Mountain rescue charges double for non-helmet wearers"

"New anti-theft device for snowboards"

"Caribbean Skiing, 15th December 2011"

Love it!
This should reignite the helmet discussion!

Have you bought your helmet yet? As of today, the Val d'Isère piste rescue service is charging double to rescue people not wearing helmets. Studies have shown that skiers with helmets are 75% less likely to suffer a head injury than skiers in bobble hats. And since they are 97% more likely to be involved in a collision than skiers in bobble hats, this is a substantial advantage. They are also 61% less likely to be injured than the other skiers, lift operators or ratrak drivers they take out - making helmet-wearers the ultimate victors. For totally carefree skiing, nothing beats the iPod, as modelled by Alex, above. Her last thought will probably be 'Wow, I never noticed 'WATCH OUT!' in this track before.'
