Most snowboarders dream of having a whole fleet of snowboards — a slew of choices to choose from daily. You would flick through them like a vinyl enthusiast trying to find their vintage Hendrix, choosing the right choice to absolutely shred whether it's a powder day, a day for cruising the resort, or if you've decided you're going to try your hand at being a park rat.

But what happens when you turn up to the resort and find that conditions aren't what was forecast? There's powder when there shouldn't be, or that groomer has the perfect corduroy, and your carving machine is at home? What you need is a quiver killer. These snowboards eschew categorization and cross boundaries so you can ride any terrain.

Your snowboard boots are a vital link in the chain that connects your body to your snowboard. But more than that, they're where your feet will be for hours at a time when you're on the slopes. If you've moved on from rental boots already, you will know that having your own boots not only keeps you more comfortable throughout a day of snowboarding but also keeps your feet warmer and drier and gives you much greater control over your snowboard.

We've picked out the best boots for various snowboarders this winter, so you can spend more time on the mountain and less time finding the perfect snowboard gear.
