Planning that perfect trip can take time.....time taken on watching shit loads of snowboard videos to get you super pumped to be on the mountain, plus little extra clicking around the internet for the cheapest flights.

Then theres getting out there, getting your gear set up, mucking around with your bindings, and finally, when you get round to it, there's time for snowboarding. But how much time do we actually spend on our snowboards on the trip?

Well the boffins over at the Science of Shred have got this covered for us. They've compiled a shed load of scientific and statistical data, spending weeks analysing the fine details of a snowboard trip to come up with this clever pie chart to put it all in perspective for you. Nice!
