Default What else am I going to need??

What items/stuff will I forget the first time I go snowboarding??

Obviously will need:
Snowboard
Bindings
Boots
Helmet
Warm clothes
Wrist Guards
Crash pants

What else will I need that I am not thinking of? I have heard of people wearing back packs when they board. What are they keeping in these back packs? Also, I have heard of tools that are good to keep around for tweaking binding settings and stuff.

I am total noob and would appreciate your input on what other items I should have with/on me when I go out (will be riding at a park versus out in the woods).

Thanks

you might a multi tool like a McIver driver..... better than having a bunch of screw drivers in yer pockets (but i never have any tools; there are usually tool posts at most lift cabins)

you didn't list gloves. but that's bloody obvious i 'spose. back packs are good for food and water and if you wanna be adventurous, you'll want tranny, shovel and probe.... but that is for next year i reckon, what with you being newb and all.....

however, if you consider yourself exclusively a park rider, i prolly ain't the best person to say shit; coz park riders to me are just plain weird!

Burton Bullet Snowboard Ski Multi Tool -- AK Red Anon - (eBay item 330180193420 end time Nov-03-07 22:48:11 PDT)

I just got a DK heli pack for the built in water pouch and i usually like carrying a sandwich and eating on the slopes so i don't have to go into the lodge and buy food. i also keep my goggles and sunglasses in my pack just in case a flurry picks up or the sun shines randomly. Seeing as it's your first time, i'd say go as light as possible. carrying a backpack throws off your balance and may hinder your initial development as a rider... that and i've seen so many noobs with random loose straps get caught up on the lifts when discharging.
