Late to the party but I'll +1 the helmet.
I've skiied in a helmet ever since I raced slalom in high school and I love it. Ski helmets tend to be comfy and do a really good job at regulating temperature. Modern ones have vents that open and close and things like removable earpads for warm days...but even the not fancy one I have from when I raced is sweet. Perfect from cold winter to melting snow spring skiing, add a thin hat for 0F days.
I've gone on a few day/weekend ski trips where I was renting gear (which until last year lived at my parents house since I usually skied with dad) and I always found myself missing the helmet.
