Snowboard Boots

Even though snowboarders and skiers often clash they both will agree on one thing: snowboard boots and ski boots are the most important pieces of gear. If a snowboarder's feet are not warm he will not be comfortable on the slopes. In addition, he will not be able to perform as well on the snowboard.

Before purchasing snowboard boots ask friends and fellow skiers for recommendations. Try on as many boots as possible to get a sense of what will make the feet feel most comfortable. Too much room around the foot can cause excess feelings of cold; too little room can cause feelings of tightness.

Beginning snowboarders will want to shop for soft snowboard boots. More advanced riders will graduate to stiffer boots. These respond faster to movements and provide more ankle support for tricks and aggressive snowboarding.
