Snowboarding Checklist

Our FREE snowboarding checklist is intended for those spending a day on the mountain at their local resort with friends or family. It is also great for those who are planning a weekend trip to their favorite snowboarding destination. A quick glance at this checklist before heading out the door will ensure nothing will be left behind.

Please note that this checklist is by no means intended for backcountry snowboarding trips. It does not include the important safety gear required when venturing into the backcountry. It also does not include the overnight gear required on multi-day backcountry trips. The list does include a few extra food and drink items that may not apply to everyone. We hope you understand that not all items on the checklist will be used, and it should be adapted to fit your needs. We’ve also included a few blank spaces in each section for you to write in items that are specific to you.

If you are a first time snowboarder and need to rent gear when you get to the resort, check out this post on renting snowboard gear for beginners. Feel free to let us know if we’ve forgotten anything important in the comments section below. We hope you find our snowboarding checklist useful!
