Checklist for the Perfect Snowboarding Holiday

Aug 17, 2007
Snowboarding has gained incredible popularity during the past years and it is easy to see why; it is fun, exciting and yet as safe as skiing. As soon as the autumn begins snowboarders start making plans for a snowboarding holiday. However, the snowboard is not the only thing you need for a successful vacation therefore let us go together through the checklist and ensure you are ready to slide on those slopes.

Snowboarding Gear

The snowboard is your main item but without the right gear you will ruin your snowboarding holiday. Here is what you must include as your essential gear to be both safe and still have fun at the same time: for your head and face, which will be the most exposed to cold winds and dry weather, you will need specially designed helmets that will also protect you in case of a fall, many snowboarders who have not yet had a serious fall still don't see the use of it but, trust me when and if you ever happen to have a serious fall on the slopes you will be more than glad you were wearing a strong helmet.

Even if you don't use your hands as much as you do in skiing, you will still need proper gloves to cover and protect them from the cold. The rest of the body can have a one piece suit made specially for skiing and snowboarding that is both lightweight yet retains body heat.

Most young snowboarders prefer to wear training shoes when snowboarding, which serve the purpose but don't work as well when it comes to keeping your feet warm and dry therefore, you must try and choose snowboarding boots, which have the essential grip and keep your feet warm as well.

The Right Resort

So you have the gear ready but did you book your snowboarding holiday yet? In order to get great prices, packages and bargains you will need to book your snowboarding holiday in advance. In fact if you know where and when you are going in the summer months, it is probably the best time to book for the winter holidays.

Famous resorts such as Vermont, Colorado, Aspen or Whistler (Canada) have fixed prices year round and therefore you only need to book in advance to make sure you have a snowboarding holiday when you want one in the place of choice as if you wait for the last minute you may not be able to find any availability in resorts or hotels.

Helpful Tip

A successful snowboarding holiday is one that is planned in advance and well organized with all the essential gear and necessities. In case you forget something, remember that snowboarding resorts have renting centers as well.
