1. Oakley Airwave 1.5


These goggles have a heads-up display that uses GPS and onboard sensors to show your speed, altitude, airtime and height, and even piste maps.

2. POC Spine VPD


This armour is super-light and, although you’ll resemble an NFL player, it’s incredibly flexible so it won’t restrict your movements when you spin off jumps.

3. Therm-ic Powerglove IC 1300


The Powerglove heats your hands electronically for up to ten hours to keep your grip secure and painful frostbite firmly at bay.

4. Salomon Quest


Finding a helmet that fits perfectly can be tricky, but the Quest uses an inflatable inner liner to ensure it’s comfortable no matter how lumpy your noggin is. 

5. Burton [ak] 31L


Developed by mountain guides, this pack with a hydration bladder, secure strap and shovel pocket can handle any tough backcountry environments.

6. Burton Ion

£300 This snowboard boot is as comfy as a trainer and has a foil liner and wicking material to keep feet warm but not sweaty. Its red wing leather will last for ages too.
