Do I need to have snowboarding tools with me when I board?

Tool Savvy

Which snowboard tools should you carry with you when you ride? The answer: a diamond stone or a whetstone. Mountains are made of rocks and you will frequently hit them while riding.

The heat generated by sudden impact with a rock can change the temperature of the metal edge and make it harder. If you run a file along the metal edge it can damage the edge, but a stone can remove any case-hardened burrs along the edges before you file them sharp.
