Burton's White Collection Snowboarding Jacket is Perfect for when You Get Lost on a Ski-Run

When you go snowboarding down your favorite diamond slope there is always the distinct possibility you could get lost. On some runs it looks like you are supposed to turn right, when really that mistake will take you into the middle of a forested grove with three foot powder. So what do you do then?

Well, if you are wearing one of the highly extroverted jacket styles available from Burton's White Collection Division , any helicopter search crew should have no problem spotting you. These jackets come in some seriously wacky yet highly fashionable styles. So you will also look really cool if you prefer sipping hot chocolate in the lodge instead of hitting the slopes.

Manufactured with a dry-ride Durashell 2-layer coated fabric, the Burton White Collection Division jacket will always keep you toasty warm and dry. There is a removable waist gaiter for that tailored look and each jacket comes with a hefty and sturdy hood for when the snow is really coming down.

This is no diva jacket however, as you can machine wash it in cold water and tumble dry it on low in the dryer with no adverse effects. Still, when you are wearing this jacket you will seriously feel like working the runway. (If you are into that kind of thing.)

Available in Factory Red Division Plaid (perfect for those helicopter fly-overs), True Black Distressed Dilemma (for true extroverts), and True Black (for a bit more of a classic look), there is a style for any snowboarder out there. Truly contemporary and stylish, the Burton White Collection Division Jacket is a must for any snowboarder this ski season.

Types of Snowboard Boots

Snowboarding boots are not all equal. Some types of boots are most appropriate for performing snowboard tricks, while others are better for racing. Still others can accommodate both comfort and control. Knowing the different types available and matching the type you purchase or use to your level of expertise and snowboarding needs will help you get the most out of your snowboarding experience.

Hard Boots
Hard snowboard boots are the best type of boot for people looking for support while racing. The outer portion of this type of boot is made of hard plastic that firmly surrounds the lower calves, ankles and feet. Hard boots feature buckles for adjusting the fit and attachment locations on the soles for connecting them to plate bindings. Because of the boots' sturdiness, they allow the snowboarder the ability to control high-speed carving on packed snow exceptionally well. These boots often have hinges built into the ankles to allow for some flexibility, but, overall, these boots are much too stiff to use for specialized snowboarding moves.

Soft Boots
Soft boots work for freestyle and freeride snowboarding as well as for snowboard tricks and maneuvers. These boots are the most comfortable and flexible of the three types of snowboard boots. Although there are a number of different variations on the soft boot type, ranging from soft boots with a stiff inner boot to soft boots with foam inner boots, all types have an inner boot, or bladder, that is laced separately from the harder outer boot. The soles of these boots are much softer than those of hard boots.

Hybrid Step-in Boots
Hybrid step-in boots combine aspects of both hard and soft snowboard boots; they have the same soft upper boot portion as the soft boots and the same hard, inflexible sole as the hard boots. Because of this combination, hybrid step-in boots provide more flexibility than hard boots while also providing more control than soft boots. These boots also feature strapless binding; they are designed to be used exclusively with step-in bindings.
