Snowboard Packing List

It doesn't matter if you are traveling to Japan or just up to Mt Buller, if you forget something important its going to cost you an arm and a leg to replace it. Make sure you have packed everything you need so you can spend as much time as possible up on the mountain rather than sourcing gear you don't need. We have tried to put a list together that covers the basic stuff. Its up to you whether you want to bring more layers and extra gear. We always recommend taking at least one pair of snowboard socks for each day you are going to ride. You wouldn't wear your normal socks two days in a row, why would you wear sweaty snowboard socks multiple days?


Important Gear to Remember:

  • Snowboard
  • Snowboard Boots
  • Helmet
  • Goggles
  • Binding Tool
  • Backpack
  • Chapstick and Sunblock
  • Snacks
  • Music and headphones (ipod or phone)


Important Clothes to Remember:

  • Snowboard Jacket
  • Snowboard Pants
  • Socks! (one pair for each day)
  • Long Underwear
  • Layering Top (Fleece, Tech Hoodie, Tech Flannel)

  • Neck Warmer (or bandana to protect your face)
  • Apres Boots


Longer Trip Packing List:

If you are headed over to Japan, Canada or just want to spend a week or two at Mt Hotham you better bring a few extra goodies. It may also be a good idea to research the dollar conversion rate before you go. Some banks will let you trade your money over before you leave at a better rate than if you pull out money while traveling. If you are still not sure where to spend your holiday check out our annual trip to Japan.
