Waterproof gloves or mittens are essential as boarders' hands come into contact with the snow a lot.

Mittens will keep your hands warmer but gloves are better for gripping ski lift tows.

Guards are useful extras to help you against the inevitable bumps and bruises that go with snowboarding.

Falls can be particularly hard on the wrists and knees.

Prices start at 10 for children and 30 for adults.
