How to rebel without getting hurt
Snowboarders have a bad reputation, but that doesn't mean all snowboarders are lawless. While it began as an indie pursuit of teenagers who thought of themselves as invincible, it's evolved into a sport enjoyed by all age groups.

- 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.
