That’s why we’ve collected some of the best deals for snowboarding that you’ll find, and there’s a little bit here for everybody. Also, don’t forget to check out our guide on the best snowboard bindings you can buy.

The Burton Cartographer Snowboard is an excellent snowboard for free riders, featuring a Dualzone EGD that provides excellent hold and response while remaining strong. It’s a great daily driver and good if you enjoy getting some air, with the 5mm taper making it great for turning. As for weight, it’s a medium board, and for price and features, it’s a pretty nice deal, all things considered.

Rossignol XF Sushi LF Snowboard — $350, was $500

A directional snowboard for freeriding, the fish shape is an interesting throwback and great for those who might want to experience how rides were in the past. With a polyurethane strip around the board to provide some dampening, the reverse side-cut profiles help with maneuverability at low speeds and all-mountain runs. It excels at powder too, so if you love plowing through snow, this will serve you pretty well.

Rossignol XV Sushi Snowboard — $400, was $500

Xavier De Le Rue is an impressive and pretty well-known snowboarder, and this board is made to his specifications, being an intersection between Japanese surf and overall snow culture, which is pretty cool. The Sushi XV works well in powder, sinking in just enough to give you both power and control while still providing a smooth ride. If you’re looking for a top-end snowboard for aggressive style with a bit of playful flair, this pro board is the one.

The best tips and tech for beating the heat while car camping this summer
Here's how to keep calm (and cool) and carry on while camping in even the worst summer heat
White Jeep camping in the Australian desert.

Unless you live in Hawaii (don't brag), summertime camping can be rough. Sleeping in a tent can be hot, clammy, and humid. On the worst nights, it's some hellish blend of all three. That's doubly true for car campers. Modern vehicles just aren't designed for maximum ventilation, and they're certainly not purposefully designed for sleeping in. But with clever planning and the help of a few cool gadgets, you can find your car camping chill, even in the dead of summer.
Park in the shade

This might seem obvious. But if you're booking a campground online with few to no photos of your actual campsite or hurrying to find a dispersed campsite at the end of a long day of driving, it's easy to overlook. If you're car camping in peak summer heat, parking in the shade is a free and easy way to keep your vehicle and your campsite cooler throughout the day. Just keep the treeline in mind if you also camp with solar panels or satellite internet gear, as full-shade camp spots will affect both.
