50ft Climbing Rope (Comes in handy if someone is stuck in pow or in any other bad spots.)Shovel for digging a place to keep alcohol ice cold
Extra battery and accessories for GoProHD

So yeah I keep a lot of stuff in my backpack. Weighs in about 15 lbs. I know its a lot but you get use to it even in the park. Makes it a lot tougher to do spins but I end up taking it off and keeping it off to the side if it bugs me too much.
Wow trying to hide a body are we?

I usually just carry one on the first run. I keep water/gatorade/beer in it. About half way down the run Ill stop and burry everything to keep it cold and throw the bag in a locker.

I wear a backpack. Even if you are staying on a slopeside condo then they can come in handy.

Mine holds:
1. Hydration pack - This is the entire reason I bought a backpack. I get thirsty as heck on the mountain. Powerade+water keeps me hydrated and helps prevent cramping up on the first day out after an entire year of not snowboarding

2. Spare goggles - if you have ever had to ride down a mountain during a blizzard with no eye protection, then you will understand.

3. Chemical warmers - I don't usually need these, but if I get wet enough/chilled enough to need them then they are available.

4. Beanie - Sometimes I like taking off my sweaty balaclava and dont want my (nearly) bald head to freeze.

5. Food - Sometimes I'll have lunch for the entire crew packed. Sometimes just a few nutty bars or cookies.

6. Board carrying - If you've ever hiked 1+ miles in semi-deep powder, then you'll understand why the ability to strap your board to your back is nice.

As for rich kids inbounds...just another form of their "blankie" with pacifier devices...not quite weened from the old saggin tit.

But if ur carrying bc stuff and actually in the bc that's different.

There's a lot of things you can put in. Especially for removing layers when it gets toasty. I know I can't stand wearing too many layers on a hot spring day.
