I wear essentially these: Men’s MPZ® 3-Pad Armour® Girdle | 1234207 | Under Armour US

They have really helped in falls from jumps, etc.

Now that it has been more than 24 hours, I should start only applying heat?

Is there tailbone protection on that?

Yes heat only to improve circulation and blood flow = healing.

Cold was for the initial 24 or so to reduce swelling.

So would a warm bath be helpful? Or would I need to take a warm towel rather?

On that model, as well as the model I have, there is tailbone padding. It has saved my ass on more than one occasion from falls on landing ramps, ice patches, boxes and rails.

At 29 bucks it doesn't look bad compared to getting some skeletools or azzpads. Sold.

So I should put a layer of memory foam under the impact shorts? I only weigh 180 lb so I should not have gotten injured with these much gear.

Bsnow - injuries are unavoidable. There is not enough padding in the world to protect all your parts that can get injured. Have a beer, sit in a hot tub, and accept injuries will happen if you snowboard.
