What do I need for backcountry snowboarding?

Backcountry Riding

Some of the snowboarding accessories you'll need for back country riding not only include cold-weather gear even in the springtime, but are different than what you'll need for resort boarding. You will encounter corn snow, so be sure you have a diamond stone to tune up your board after a few runs.

Ride with a pack. This will affect your balance, so you should practice on flat or easy terrain before going to the back country. You are responsible for your own safety, so be smart.

Carry a map, a compass, water and water bottles, flashlight or head lamp with extra batteries, a first aid kit, extra food, extra clothing, sunglasses, a pocket knife, matches in a waterproof container, and a fire starter.
