Can’t be bothered to ski or snowboard?
Have hours of fun with the kids on this great little Toboggan.
Simple but fast, the Sno Rider Toboggan is a well designed, lightweight sledge with two handles for braking and steering. It also incorporates a pull cord for easy towing - which you will have to do if the kids are lazy!
Great value with a retail price of £10 ($20).
The best knee brace in the world retails for a hefty £438 ($875) and is called the CTi knee brace. I hasten to add that this is my own personal opinion after suffering with various knee complaints over the years and should not preclude you trying out different products. Having said that it works brilliantly for me.
The CTi knee brace is ideal for a whole host of skiing and snowboard associated knee injuries - such as anterior cruciate or medial collateral ligament injury.
It’s off the shelf and made from carbon fibre and silicon components making it light and offering almost full flexibility.
It is important to bear in mind that this has to be fitted by a trained clinician (which is included in the price).
Custom made alternatives cost around £750 ($1500).
It’s always important to put in some prep fitness work before hitting the slopes.
The Indo Board offers this by improving proprioception and increased leg strength.
It can also be used for squats, lunges and upper body work. Check out the Indo DVD for further instruction.
An Indo Board retails for £100 ($200).

We took a look at one of the best ski helmets on the market. Here we recommend the very best snowboard helmet on the market.
It’s called the Indigo Helmet and it incorporates the very best in uber cool styling and protective technology. As an added piece of uber design, the helmet incorporates black snakeskin sides - this will no doubt help you slip and slide your way down the slopes!!!
The Indigo Snowboard Helmet retails for £315 ($630).
