Support local snowboarding
Ok Lads and Lasses, here’s a full run down of what you’ll need for a winter of stoke!
Boards to bags to gloves and goggles – and everything in between.
Karma’s strong … buy from your friendly neighbourhood shopkeeper and amaze as you land every trick you try!
Book on the Morzine 10 week snowboard course and you could ride with a Burton UK Pro
Lads: Looking for an all rounder that can take on the whole hill? Pick up a Burton Process.
More freestyle orientated? Make sure its the Process Off-Axis.
Lasses: The Process’ sister is the Deja Vu. Great do it all, go anywhere snowboard.
If you like a little added rum in your punch … say hello to the Feelgood!
Lads: Are you a hardcore ride everyday of the season kinda guy? You need an Ion!
Love laces? Then the Fiend is your new best friend.
Lasses: No contest … the Ritual.
Lads: The Burton Malavita is the new Burton Team favourite. Once you ride it, you’ll know why.
Lasses: The Lexa is – and has always been – every girl’s “go-to binding”.
Even girls sponsored by other brands are riding them. Look closely and you will see!
Lads: You’re probably not bothered about a jacket? Instead you just cruise around in a thin coach zip and hoodie?
But when the weather sucks, being wet is the worst.
Nylon zip ups, hoodies and powder equal missing last lifts because you got cold!
So for those days you need an [ak] 2L Velocity Anorak.
The [ak] function with “cool kid” pullover styling. First-till-last-lifts for more stories in the bar!

Lasses: There is only one way to go here: keep it long, keep it slim and add a “collab” with the L.A.M.B. Riff Parka.

Lads: The big baggie pant days are long gone, sorry. Keep it mid fit with a tuck at the knee.
Check out the Southside pant that has two fit options mid and slim. Which are you?
Lasses: You want the pants that the boys like? But would you wear big baggies down to the bar? Nah!
The Vida snowboard pant keeps you looking and feeling good.
That means your guaranteed to ride better. It’s all about confidence.
Lads and Lasses: Keep it “burgler” and turned up! And please … put the BOBBLE down!!
Kactusbunch (for Lads)
Bone Cobra (for Lasses)
Lads and Lasses: Not being able to see is going to ruin your day. Full stop.
Get yourself a set of Anon Magna-tech goggles.
With the quickest changing lens in the industry you’re never going to get caught short by the changing weather again.
Unless you left the spare at the bottom of the hill. Doh!

Anon MFI: Magnetic Facemask Integration
Lads and Lasses: The worst thing about helmets is the weight. So keep it light.
For the lads we have the Talan.
The girls get the Griffon, which at 385grams will having you forgetting it’s even there.
Lads: You want a Mid Weight Crew and Pant because being cold sucks.
Plus if you’re lucky enough to drop a keg later, you’re looking good too!
Added stink-proof tech means you can wear them all week long.
Mid Weight Crew
Lasses: Take on a Women’s Tech Tee with a cute drop tail styling!
UPF 50+ rating so you’re not going to burn catching those spring time rays.
Bottoms, try the Women’s Burton Active Legging. Just in case you come across that yoga class off the side of a red run.
Stranger things have happened.
Lads: The Free Range Mitt is coooooool.

Lasses: Women’s Warmest Mitt: it’s called that for one reason and one reason only.
