Helmets and hats
The helmet has become a standard piece of kit for many snowboarders.
The temptation to try tricks is irresistible and boarders tend to fall over a lot more than skiers so it makes sense to ensure the head is well protected.
If you are not wearing a helmet, a hat is equally as important as you need to keep yourself warm and most heat is lost through the head.
On average junior helmets cost about £35 and adults £45.
