Do you prefer fashion or function while snowboarding? Whichever you choose, proper attire can make the difference between the best time ever and being uncomfortable and miserable all day long. We’ll start with head gear, because just like in the winter, keeping your head and face protected on the glacier snowfield is a must. In this day and age of snowboard fashion acceptance, there are many ways to look dope while staying cool and covered from the harsh UV rays.
Goggles and Backwards hat

Flat brim and glasses

Con: Opening yourself up for major sun damage on your nose, face and neck.
Pro: Optimum shade on the upper half of your face.
