How to rebel without getting hurt

Snowboarders have a bad reputation, but that doesn't mean all snowboarders are lawless.

  • Dress in layers - Choose waterproof for your outer layer, but wear a number of layers that you can peel of when you overheat.
  • Wear sunscreen - Your face, neck and hands are all at risk of serious sunburn. Remember, reflected sunlight is ten times more powerful, which can lead to permanent skin damage.
  • Bring first aid - No one plans for an...
