I've had a Bell Snow Sprint for a few years and like it. They didn't make them for a couple of years, but I see them in Dennis Kirk now for $100. I tried on some inexpensive HJC helmets and liked them as well, maybe I'll try one of them next. Best thing to do, go to several well stocked dealers and try on helmets. They all fit different, and everybody's head is different. You won't know until you try them all. Things to consider: On/off over you ears, Do they sqeeze your face too much, Extra room for a balaclava or to circulate a little air. As far as safety ratings go, its your head. My head's only worth DOT. They're mostly for warmth, anyway. I've never heard of a sledding fatality where a better helmet would have made the difference. Not pulling out in front of a car, THAT would have made a difference.
