Default American Football gear for snowboarding (skiing)?

Hola! Complete newbie here.
I'm due to hit the hard slope for a taster/beginners snowboarding day so am currently thinking about what suitable clothes I have. regarding any padding, what do people think about using some old American Football stuff I've recently found (and they still fit me, yay!)- by that I don't actually mean the shoulder pads and helmet
I'm more thinking about the 5 pocket under armour girdle with the hip, thigh and tail pad inserts. And possibly wearing my old football shorts and fitting in the knee pads.

As I said I'm a complete noob, so don't know whether this kind of padding will be too bulky - but of course it's designed for 'football athletes' to be able to run and operate smoothly.

Well I'm thinking some of you guys will know best (and possibly even have played/play football).

Thanks a lot.
