Step 1 - Get the right gear
Don’t end your first snowboarding experience feeling cold and sore. The sport requires slightly different clothing from skiing, although you are able to hire most of the equipment at Club Med resorts (which also saves on packing). Snowboarding boots are a must as they’re specially designed to strap into your new form of transport. You’ll need a crash helmet because you will fall over. Snow trousers and a coat that are not too tight are recommended or you could get an all-in-one outfit. You’ll need socks that prevent chafing and don’t forget to add thermal layers as it gets rather cold up there. Goggles and gloves go without saying.
