Jacket and tops
Snowboard jackets may look slightly different to ski jackets, but they both carry out exactly the same function.
Weather in the mountains can change quickly so a waterproof jacket, preferably with hood and zipped pockets, is a must.
Snowboard jackets cost from £40 for children and £80 for adults.
The key to staying warm on the mountain is to wear plenty of layers. Thermal T-shirts, sweatshirts, hooded tops and fleeces all do the job well.
