4. Protect yourself
This is an extreme sport so it only makes sense to protect yourself, first up with decent insurance that covers winter sports – take it from someone who has been rescued from the mountain, ski resort medical treatment is pricey! If you want more information on snowsports insurance check out the Post Office Ski Safe page which has some great tips.
5. The boots take some getting used to
Snowboarding boots are a little more flexible but whether you are a skier or a boarder those boots will make you walk like a dinosaur. You totally get used to it after a while, but make sure you get decent socks and pack some compeeds to ease any discomfort.
