This may sound like a dumb question to you bikers that ride in the extreme cold. But I live in the south where there is not a lot of cold weather. Do you use snowmobile helmets ? Do they keep your face and head warmer ? Is there any real difference in the 2 helmets. Only differences I have been told is there is a plug in heat strip shield on the snowmobile helmet.

Rode down to between 9 and 17 in Jan this year for a patriot guard mission. half helmet but balaclava and several bandanas just try not to expose any skin
I use a G-Max 54s modular made for the snow.
And you can get a double pain shield so it won't fog.
I don't ride in cold weather for the hell of it but I do a couple charity rides...one for kids at Christmas and one for the homeless shelter in January. I wear a full face modular helmet year round and I put on a silk baclava in cold weather and my head does not get cold. I have a one piece under suit thin but warm from cycle gear they call freeze out and it works well.
Below freezing temps regular motorcycle helmet or snowmobile helmet with balaclava work chaps and winter gloves and I'm fine
Snow mobile helmet is warmer and has a double shield that does not fog up and has a nose and chin peaces to keep the air from getting to your face ... Normal full face is lighter whit better air flow and not as warm ... I ride in the frigging cold cause i live in the frigging cold ... So i normaly wear a half helmet and use a leather face mask To cover face and ears ... Heated vest under my leather jacket or a good touring suit ... Takes up less space in the bags then a full face ... But a full face is warmer ... I dont think anyone should need a snowmobile helmet and if you do need a snowmobile helmet you will need chains on the tire ... If you have a motorcycle full face and still to cold a fleece mask should do the trick to keep
You chin and neck warm ...
