Now all the ones I see have crappy earbuds. Tried one out at the show and it sucked!
The only reason the trip is on the cheaper side is because my gf is German and her parents have a place there, so I kinda lucked out in that respect. However, hotels at the bottom of the mountain will run you about $130/day which is still a great deal. Most Hotels even offer lift ticket packages if you book with them so it's not bad.

Not sure how I feel about helmets with headphones. I personally like hearing everything around me or the pure quiet. I saw some helmets, like what you're describing, at the snowboard show didn't look at how much they were selling for.
