I went snowboarding last season, and I had a pretty bad experience - more to do with the resort than snowboarding itself. However, I want to be prepared when I go this season, I've even decided to buy a season pass at a different, much better resort. I need recommendations for four pieces of gear.
1. I wear glasses, so I've been searching around for OTC goggles, I found theseOTC Goggles
, but one reviewer states they're not good with a Helmet.
2. Looking for a cheap yet reliable helmet that would fit with OTC goggles, haven't been able to find any.
3. I've been searching around for butt pads, I'm stuck between DS 1450
, DS 5155
, and Hillbilly Butt pads
. . . I'm leaning more towards a DS pad but not sure!
4. Lastly, can anyone recommend good gloves? Ones that protect the wrists? I fell on ice pretty hard a few times last season, despite my efforts to fall on my forearms . . its inevitable to happen.
Let me know what you guys think. Any feedback would be appreciated for a novice like me, please spare me the countless hours of research I'll have to do otherwise.
