I would never want to listen to music on the slopes, for one I love the sound of being up in the mountains snowboarding, I can listen to music anytime. Secondly I think sound is an important part of your awareness when snowboarding, you can hear if you hit ice for example or hear the people around you. I have seen guys wearing earphones cut off people and not even know it cause theyre in their own world.
Same way I am. And as far as where I snowboard, It's all ice well snowey kindof icey hill type crap. lmao, Very loud and I need to hear that, Need to hear my board hitting the rail.
