2. Transfer Snowboard Magazine 2012

Published at http://www.mountainwatch.com, this article links to an online copy of Australia & New Zealand’s No.1 Snowboard Magazine.

It has all the usual bumph on snowboards, bindings, boots and accessories, allowing you to zoom in and flick from page to page.

With a specific section just for backcountry riding and the kit you’ll need, it also covers clothing in-depth, showing combinations for both women and men, as well as technical and base layers.

A nice touch if you’re looking for a brand new outfit this season.
